While we tasted this wine together, Mugnier commented: “I think it’s a very special vintage. Drought is more damaging than heat. In 2019, luckily, there were locally some showers to bring the humidity the vines needed. The vines were relatively comfortable, and harvest was not excessively early – later than in 2018 and 2020. I’m very concerned with very early harvests. In August, vines shut down (to spare water) and don’t breathe or grow. Maturation of the flavours takes place in September, not August.” Here we have a wine of impressively deep purple colour. Aromas are rich, fresh and open. Palate is beautiful, with dense fruitiness, gentle tannins, luscious harmony and generous length. A gorgeous wine (for drinking 2024-2035+).
