Maximum 7 months following vinification in the same oak casks. TA 5.8 g/l, RS 1.9 g/l, pH 3.18.
Horribly heavy and wide bottle that is too big for my wine rack. But the contents are much more inviting – incredibly creamy aroma, scented with something a little like jasmine but without the sweetness of oak thanks to these untoasted barrels. Green apple and citrus fruit, immense freshness and purity. Intense without being heavy, and long. Both bold and elegant. 17/20 points. (JH)"
