Tasting note

It is quite interesting to compare with the last vintage. They are like a good pair of examples illusatrating Yin and Yang. When the 2019 more on the red fruits, lighter concentration, everything was about airy, swift, free-flowing. The 2020 vintage is however characterised by expressive black berry notes, more concentration of fruits, with a touch of spiciness. It is further defined by its broad structure, and highly expressive energy flow with forward and pronounced acidity. Tannins are soft and supple, while abundunt in volume, making it a harmonious wine. Already quite complex and palatable with the En Primeur sample. Can drink fairly young (perhaps around 2025) for the youthful character, but can certainly age long time: 2040+.

Drinking window suggestion : 2025-2040+
