Tasting Notes

**Note: 2 barrels were produced from vines in Les Gaudichots planted in 1933 and aged in CAVIN Aphrodite barrels that are made from 300 year old oak trees sourced from the Fontainebleau forest**
This is aromatically similar to the regular cuvée with just a bit more floral and spice influences. The sleek, ultra-intense and beautifully delineated flavors are notably more mineral-inflected while displaying an overt muscularity on the imposingly powerful finish. This is a borderline massive yet impeccably well-balanced wine and I would strongly suggest that you not even think about opening a bottle before its 10th birthday and at least 20 will be necessary for this to reveal its full potential.
