Blended across four Grand Cru vineyards and two vintages (04 and 05) with a dosage of 6 grams. It spends four years on lees and the autolysis derived elements are perfectly matched to the intensity of fruit flavour. Imported by Bibendum Wine Co. who note that
“it’s not just a terrific wine, the “nude lady” label is a cracker as well”
I love their appreciation of modern art. Oh, and it is biodynamically produced for those of you who are fussed about such matters.
Grapefruit sluices through apricot, fried breadcrumbs and Vegemite™ on wheat crackers. Pillowy soft in the mouth, creamy through the mid-section with more generous praline sweetness curving around a chalky, mineral frame. Roasted hazelnuts and sea-spray are part of a prolonged climax. This rolls rather splendidly. Very Good – Excellent
