Vintage Notes from the Producer:The 2014 is a precious vintage, especially today. It recalls the past and classic vintages of our fathers and grandfathers. Long cycle, fresh climate, late harvest which featured wines of great elegance, character, well-balanced with medium alcohol, complex and mineral in the aromatics with good acidity making them long-lasting.
Floral and fragrant, this boasts enticing scents of blue flower, wild berry, dark spice and crushed herb. The polished vibrant palate delivers red cherry compote, cranberry, star anise and a hint of orange zest offset by elegant fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced, while an almost salty mineral note lingers on the close. Drink 2021–2028. ~95, WE
