Tasting Notes

This wine has really located its soul-essence, and is less recherché than in earlier editions, which could sometimes be either woodsy or sous-voile. Now a blend of ’07-’08, it’s still barrel fermented but oak confers only a soulful seasoning; it’s a caskseasoned long-aged (on the lees under cork, not crown-cap); it was sleek, forest-y, crunchy and glorious.
