Tasted in 2011, the nose was still closed.
This good quality harvest produced a powerful wine, tannic and hard when it was young.
In 2011, the palate was impressive for its density and freshness. It still seemed so young that we almost wanted to wait a few more years...
Very fine weather generally throughout the whole year, including the harvest. However, it would appear that the ripeness did not reach optimal levels.
Perhaps everybody was in as much of a hurry to harvest as they were to see the end of the bloody war that had been raging in Europe for four years. (The picking began 20th September)
