Vintage 1971

Tasting notes

Clear, golden yellow colour. Penetrating nose, smoothly blended like a polished pebble. Sensations flow and mingle - toasted, spicy - a muted, restrained experience, expressing a subtle reserve. On the palate: long, very elegant, lively and racy. Lovely, melting milky caramel attack flowing into warm notes of woodsmoke and peppered vanilla, with lovely hints of undergrowth.

The 1971 Harvest

The year consisted of a cold, dry winter and spring frosts which affected a considerable part of the vineyard. Flowering in June took place in difficult, stormy conditions. The harvest began on 18 September.
