The top cuvee clos papet (100 year old vines) was not made in this vintage - the juice is in this declassified cuvee and is quite good!

Silky smooth, dried fruit, brown leaves at the end of fall, fatty deliciousness.

2006. A touch tight out of the gate, but it reliably shows that red cherry and sandalwood that I always get from this estate. This is drinking really well now, I wouldn't hold it much longer.

1998. Nicely developed. Slight barnyard. Dried flowers and herbs. Missing some fruit but very enjoyable
