Description

Etienne de Montille commented that 2019 "presented its fair share of challenges but nothing we haven't seen before. However, the challenges weren't without consequence as each of them took a bite out of the potential yields. This was the case even though individually none of them were serious, but when we added them all together, it cost us around 25%. In the end, though, the fruit was spotless and ripe with good acidities. The skins were thick, and we used varying proportions of whole clusters while vinifying very softly to avoid extracting too much tannin. As to the style of the reds, they remind of a hypothetical blend of 2016 and 2017 as they combine the density and power of the former with the elegance and terroir transparency of the latter. They should be capable of aging gracefully for years.

This wine has 33% of whole clusters.

Review

Here too there is a whiff of volatile acidity that plays at the edge of perceptibility on the mostly red berry fruit and spice-infused nose. There is a lovely sense of refinement to the nicely rich and well-delineated flavours that exude a bracing salinity on the sneaky long, firm and youthfully austere finale. While not technically perfect, this is still really quite good.

Tasting Profile

Nose
It is floral, and perfumed with subtle aromas.
Palate
The small black and red berries are framed by a rather light, svelte and feminine structure accompanied by a simultaneously generous yet tense texture.
