VINTAGE

2016

Intriguing, lifted aromas of ripe mandarin peel, nectarine, hazelnut and vanilla bean with nuances of nutmeg and lemon meringue. The palate is extremely intense with a seamless flow of sweet citrus notes and baked apple.  Finely knit and very classical with sensational length – the hallmark of this iconic vineyard.
