TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING)
A fine wine with a deep ruby red colour and wonderful aromas of fresh fruit and black fruit. Excellent structure, elegance, remarkable balance with sophisticated, supple tannins leading to a long fruity finish. A great success for this rather atypical year.
The vintage owes its particular characteristics to the excessive heat the first fortnight of August, with temperatures above 40°C, combined with lower than average rainfall throughout the growth cycle.
A lively, fruity wine with excellent olfactive expression. Plenty of substance on the palate, while remaining supple and balanced. This wine may be aged for a long time, and is somewhat similar to the 1986 vintage.
