Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) This Chateauneuf-du-Pape from what was a difficult vintage expresses the ‘typicity’ of the terroir. Bottled 18 months after the harvest the fruit has been transformed into musky and animal scents. This is a wine to decant before drinking but there is no hurry, it can age for at least another 5 years.
