Vintage 1980

Tasting notes

Golden straw colour. On the nose, a suggestion of toasted brioche, clear hints of preserved citrus fruits with very slight suggestion of menthol, all developing to reveal more sustained notes of autumn fruits. Clean and pure on the palate. The lively structured attack gradually gives way to the wine's fleshy fullness. Lovely persistence with a touch of citrusy freshness.

The 1980 Harvest

The harvest was small and late, beginning on October 9 in good weather conditions.
