The vines of Les Eygats grow on a high, windy, east-facing plot, 300m above sea level, on granite terraces. The grapes naturally retain good acidity, giving a vibrant wine with great ageing potential. Deep ruby-purple, this has gorgeously fragrant aromas of ripe black berries, violets and fresh mint. Palate is fleshy, with rich, dense fruit, all tightly held in a freshly tannic frame. This is a layered, long-flavoured bottle for the future (for drinking 2024-2034+).
