This was the first wine we ever 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. 35% whole bunches were added to the fermentation vat, and the wine has been ageing 20% in new oak barrels. Colour is not deep, but a charming violet-ruby; nose is discreet, but clean and fresh. Palate shows good structure and broad fruit, with smooth texture, gentle tannins and fine length (for drinking 2022-2030+).
