Produced from 63 year old vines, fermented and aged in 50% new Burgundian oak, which gives added structure to the wine. Only 8 barrels of this wine were produced. The bouquet is immediately appealing, quite lush, but then broadens to show cassis, cherry and spice elements. There is an underlying hint of menthol from the limestone soils (very atypical) which in no way detracts, but adds texture and a seasoning balance to the overt sweetness and ‘jammy’ ripeness of the wine. A long, complex and broadening finish.
