The 2016 'Vieilles Vignes' is a sensational showing. This instantly begins to impress as it releases wonderful complex aromas of ripe cherries and dark plums woven together with spice cake, black olive, licorice and hints of exotic spices. Medium-full bodied with outstanding balance and concentration, backed by a dense core of ripe fruit. It shows excellent overall balance and remains fresh and inviting through the finish. While this is displaying plenty of early appeal, it possesses the characteristics to age beautifully for many years to come.
