Delicious no matter the vintage. Very good and melon, peach, funky on the palate. So enjoyable.

Needed some time in the decanter to blow off the funk. Once that happen, typical La Lune magic appears

The amphore maceration takes away all the unwanted rs La Lune has been showing the last few vintages. This is indeed good juice

I really don’t see the reason for elevage in amphora here - what is otherwise an incredible wine is suddently just an ‘interesting’ wine. Sure it adds an extra textural dimension, but is it really needed?
