A very attractive appearance with its colour slightly tinged by age. Its delicate nose heralds a certain complexity. Youthful aromas are gradually starting to give way to jammier fruit and softer spice. On the palate, the most astonishing element is its balance. An exceptionally straight-lined style with beautiful balance between tannins, acidity and alcohol. Deep intensity brings us into the hugely profound finish. Enjoy now or in 20 years’ time!
The winter, one of the coldest of the past two decades, was severe. Spring offered what you would expect for the season. In July, a dryness set in that would last until September and even October, with the nights remaining cool.
