Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Here the nose is actually quite similar to that of the Pucelles save for being ever-so-slightly riper and displaying more overt peach influence. There is the same exquisite purity to the strikingly intense and beautifully well-detailed flavors that ooze both a fine minerality and plenty of dry extract that imparts a wonderfully seductive texture to the explosive yet refined finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Deep, brooding aromas of apricot, minerals, menthol and clove, with a suggestion of super ripeness and outstanding complexity. Super concentrated, sweet and powerful, with harmonious ripe acidity buffering the wine's alcohol and extending its finish. This really saturates the palate with flavor.
