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 is made from 80YO vines and 100% clusters.

A super-floral nose seems to have every floral element in the book including a perfumed hint of gardenia that adds a touch of elegance to the exotically spicy aromas of red and black raspberry. The pure and almost painfully intense flavours are like rolling tiny stones around in the mouth while delivering outstanding depth and persistence on the overtly austere, serious and compact finale that leaves zero doubt that this beauty is built-to-age. In a word terrific.

Tasting Profile

Highly defined, precise, pure, often floral and always mineral and spicy.
It is a model of aromatic purity, precision, and of structural exactness. The mouthfeel is robust with a tannic frame that is strict, dense and minerally.
