Description

A wine of exceptional quality made with the best grapes of a single harvest. A Vintage declaration occurs when producers believe that all conditions are gathered to release the highest standard of quality. On average, fully declared 2 to 3 times per decade, the wine must be bottled between the 2nd and 3rd year after the harvest. A wine built to age for decades reaching full maturity after 20 to 40 years of bottle aging.

Tasting Notes

Dark purple in colour. This is a rich and opulent VP with ripe aromas of cassis, violets and blackberry. With layers of alluring spice, earth, sweet berry and jammy plum fruit, amidst ripe and beautifully integrated tannins, this powerful beast has great structure and features an outstanding finish of superb length and intensity.
