Tasting Note:

Incredibly detailed, tight-knit, salt-licked berry fruit. At the core of the wine is a cool, stony quality. The structure is firm but finely-chiselled. Impressive but will need time to unwind. Confusingly this is a single vineyard in its own right that has nothing to do with the Rabaja. The Rabaja Bas is west facing, (as opposed to south west facing for Rabaja) and is very steep, sitting at the top of the hill above Paje. Fermented in steel tanks as opposed to open wood vats for the other Crus. Aged for 24 months in large used Slavonian oak vats.
