Winemaker's Notes

Our winemakers have both worked in Burgundy and they have rigidly stuck to this famous wine region's traditional techniques when making this wine. They include fermentation in small open topped wooden vats, each one being gently worked on by hand, on multiple occasions day and night. The resulting many little batches of wine were separately matured in French oak barriques for 18 months before the proportions in the final blend were determined by blind tasting. Very low crops have produced a wine of splendid flavour and concentration. While powerful in the mouth with a lingering after-taste, it has velvety tannins. Cherry and raspberry flavours intertwine with savoury gamey and mushroom elements. While delightful to drink now, you will be rewarded if you cellar it carefully. The 2000 vintage of this wine was recently favourably reviewed by the influential American Wine Spectator magazine, where it received 91/100 points. We believe that the 2001, which has not as yet been reviewed, is as good.
