Some customers will remember this wine which we shipped, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the vines were owned by Annick Parent. Due to ill health she was unable to continue the arduous work in the vines and so she sold them to Domaine Faiveley. They, we are pleased to report, continue to produce wines of energy, elegance and charm, much in the spirit of Annick’s wines. The warm soils of this 1st Growth allow early ripening, and have given an exceptional wine this vintage. Colour is bright, medium-deep purple, with opulent, complex aromas. This has richly buoyant fruit, evidently coming from fully ripened grapes which have retained their freshness. Light tannins are present, and will ensure a smooth progression to maturity (for drinking 2021-2028+).
