Most of these vines were planted by Claudie’s great-grandfather in 1919, so are nearly 100 years old. They are still in rude health, very few having needed replanting. A special caterpillar tractor is needed to cultivate them, aided by horse-power. Only three barrels were made, of which one was new. Colour is rich, red-purple, the nose being finely perfumed, with aromas of herbs and mint. Palate is richy structured and opulent, with solid fruitiness from the start of tasting, all the way through to the end. Tannins are ample, balanced and very elegant, promising many years of superb enjoyment (for drinking 2019-2030+).
