Vintage 2000

ON THE PALATE

The attack bursts forth, before maturing into a sensual fullness that winds around itself, like a tendril of foliage. Notes of liquorice and dried ginger linger on the skin of fruit (pear and mango), more textured than ripe. The finish gradually unfurls and then settles, smooth, mellow, all-encompassing. An indefinable je ne sais quoi, never upsetting the integrity of the wine, has worked its charm.

ON THE NOSE

Fresh, crystalline, and sharp, the first nose unveils an unusual dimension, an aquatic vegetal world with secret touches of white pepper and gardenia. The wine reveals a light, gentle maturity before exhaling peaty scents.

The 2000 Harvest

The year 2000 was warm, with cooler-than-average temperatures in the month of July and frequent storms that brought significant amounts of rain and hail. The initial tastings revealed that the Chardonnay grapes harvested last were supple, ample and complex. The Pinot Noir harvest was structured and offered great length.
