Tasting Note:

There was much less of this made in 2019, as a lot more was used for the crus than usual. Really bright, fresh red cherry fruit. Direct, crisp and taut. Long, luminous, and juicy, this illuminates the palate with its vivid, crystalline red fruit. This may not be as complex as the crus, but it has stunning poise and surprising length. Pure pleasure. A blend of declassified wine from the Rabaja and Faset vineyards. Aged for a little less time than the crus, 18 months in large old Slavonian oak casks.
