Still very much in embryonic form upon tasting in 2016 as a barrel sample, it gives just a sense of the potential of this vintage in Florent’s talented hands. Concentrated and structured, with considerable swirling dark, brooding fruit and spice abound. One for the long haul: your patience will be rewarded.
Due to tiny quantities and high demand this wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.
All destemmed, aged for 18 months in demi-muids. Remarkable aromatic finesse already, boding well for the future; it majors on rich, ripe fruit rather than oak. Very full and rounded, but full of life and energy, this is buzzing with vitality. It has fresh, lip-smacking acidity and tannin, and a very long finish. A fantastic balance between freshness, concentration and pure, regal Hermitage fruit. Whatever style of Hermitage you like, this shouldn’t disappoint - it has depth and power as well as finesse. Very impressive, complete wine.
