2000 vintage

The legendary vintage of 2000 has a young deep crimson colour. The nose offers opulence and concentration with intense aromas of plum, blackberry, red pepper and violets. This wine needs substantial aeration to develop its richness and complexity with an elegant minerality. This balance remains very persistent in the mouth.
