Vintage 1921

Tasting notes

"Exceptionally pale for its age, the wine showcases an intriguing bouquet of toasted sandalwood, vanilla, honey, praline and marzipan. On the palate, one is struck by the life, the energy and the backbone. It remains focused, with a lacy texture. A key feature is the tremendous persistence of dry nutty flavors. Overall, a model of balance and concentration." Richard Geoffroy, February 2004

The 1921 Harvest

A very fine, hot summer. Harvesting began on 19 September. The spring frosts destroyed a large part of the crop, but what was left displayed marvellous quality.
