This was the first wine we selected from Seguin-Manuel, back in the 2010 vintage, and that bottle has now reached its peak for delicious drinking. Coming from the family’s own 50 year-old vineyards, it is again one of the best wines, and greatest values, in the cellar. 30% whole bunches were added to the fermentation vat, and the wine has been ageing 20% in new oak barrels. Colour is medium red-purple, with ripe, fresh fruitiness on the nose, very fragrant. Palate is of medium weight, with charming fruit intensity, gentle texture and well balanced, fresh aftertaste (for drinking 2021-2028+).
