Description

IN BOND

A blend that is, according to the tech sheet provided to me, 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec, 2% Pinot Noir, 4% Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Armigne, Arenie, Bastardo, Saperavi, Tchkaveri, Montepulciano, Areni Noir, Tchekavesi, Sousón, Brancalleo, Carmenère, Abouriou and Plavac Mali (I haven't even heard of some of these varieties!). Average age of vines is 42 years. Picked between 2 and 13 September. Aged in oak. 82,000 bottles and 3,000 magnums made. TA 3.59, pH 3.54.
The perfume on this wine, beautiful to begin with, became more and more and more hauntingly lovely as it sat in the glass. I left it and just kept coming back, and every time there was something else there. Lovage, roses, the smell of the most delicious deeply composty loamy soil damp with light rain, lavender. It rose out of the glass in a slow, languid cloud. It took me ages to taste it and when I did, it was ripe damsons, tobacco leaf, dried cranberries, rose petals, a touch of hot-summer-dry garrigue. The fruit was lustrous, almost pearlescent, reverberating gently, held lightly in exquisitely fine but strong tannins. Silk and dust. This is a wine that plumbs the depths of flavour and timbre. Exhilarating yet quiet, intense yet unshowy, effortlessly elegant. One of the most beautiful Languedoc wines I have tasted. And still so young … this has years ahead of it.
