Oenothèque

1975

ON THE PALATE

The wine in its entirety is particularly consistent, the palette of flavours a mirror of the bouquet’s promise. The classic beauty of a remarkably complex and well-balanced vinosity is extremely attractive. The taste of the fruit is still surprisingly present at this age, acting as a signature note to the finish which marries warm aromas of new leather and gingerbread.

ON THE NOSE

The lightly refreshing attack, with an initial rush of grapefruit, immediately leads to notes of flowery honey and toasted hazelnuts combined with roasted aromas and exotic spices.

The 1975 Harvest

Weather conditions were good throughout the year. As a result of a cold spring, budbreak was extremely late, but flowering took place under near-perfect conditions. The summer was hot and sunny, punctuated by a few storms in August. Harvesting began on 29 September with good weather, which deteriorated rapidly.
