Description

JS96
2016 was a vintage year where there were no excesses of either heat or rain, which is becoming unusual in these days of climate change. Yields are low at 30 hl/ha, evidence of rigorous vineyard practices plus the selection of only the best grapes for this cuvée.

The grapes were macerated for four weeks to extract all the colour and tannins before a 12-day fermentation in stainless steel. The wine matures for 24 months in French oak barriques, 85% new and 15% second-fill. That level of new oak used might sound excessive, but it isn’t overt. Instead, the wood adds depth and subtle flavours. Bottling was in December 2018, twelve months ago.

It’s a dark ruby red, with aromas of pencil lead, bergamot, oranges, and brown spices underlying sour cherry. On the palate, the watchwords are elegance and finesse. Despite its richness, it’s agile; there’s nothing weighty or clumsy, just the cherry and plum fruit depth. Meanwhile, the tannins add polish and a luxuriously smooth shine.

Finally, on a persistent length, savoury spices re-appear. This young wine will develop further, yet why wait? Yes, it’s a modern “international style”. But, in this case, what style.
