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. In 2018 it aged for 18 months in barrels, of which 50% were new and 50% had held 1 or 2 previous vintages. Deep ruby-purple, this has sensational, rich, fragrant aromas of ripe black berries and violets. Palate is fleshy, with good volume and luscious fruit, all tightly held in a fine, tannic frame. This is a racy, long-flavoured bottle for the future (for drinking 2023-2032+).
