Tasting Notes

(these very old vines produced just under 30 hectoliters per hectare in 2016): Pale yellow. Pure but reticent nose hints at white peach, menthol, mint and pungent fresh herbs. A step up in power and grip from the Combettes but not quite as expansive as that wine, at least in the early going. Finishes savory, dry and long, with excellent structure and grip.

**Note: from a parcel owned by Domaine Duc de Magenta**
Pungent notes of reduction mask everything except background hints of grapefruit. More positive is the sleeker if less generous middle weight flavors that possess even more minerality before terminating in a focused, intense and beautifully long finish. This is built-to-age and is going to need at least a few years first. This too is worth checking out.
