Tasting Note:

A ripe and expressive Les Cintres bursting with aromas of bergamot and pear, then fresh chilli, lemon tart and vanilla. The palate is both broad and focussed, with a bed of deep chalk, fine toast, red currant, confit lemon and then fresh sourdough. This is both caressing and possessing great concentration and intensity, with sweet pea and lemon pith, rock salt and brioche flavours all leading to a fine stony finish. For best results, serve this in a burgundy glass to let the layers unfurl. It would be a fabulous counterpoint to langoustine, lobster, or turbot. Les Cintres is a pure Pinot Noir cuvee that comes from the steepest, central plots of "Les Grands Cintres" and "Les Petits Cintres" . The vines are up to 70 years old. Dosage is 4.5g/l, and this release was disgorged in March 2020, with just 1361 bottles produced.
