“100+-year-old Roussanne here gives very small yields, and it's harvested around two weeks after the younger vines. This wine has notes of macadamia, mango, quince and rhubarb - a dizzying kaleidoscope of scents. It's very full-bodied indeed, almost too rich, but it pulls back from the brink with a gleaming mineral edge and adequate balancing acidity. Almost too much this year, it tastes nearly sweet on the mid-palate but finishes dry, very long and absurdly opulent. It's always an attention-grabbing wine. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040”
