Saturday, May 23, 2009 - Correspondence with Aubert led us to believe that this wine may have been made from pre-phylloxera vines, he asked that we inspect the cork and if the words ‘vigne francais non reconstitutee’ were present that this would be confirmation. The condition of the cork allowed us not to inspect anything legible but the wine was superb.The wine looks bright and energetic and has an intoxicating bouquet of cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, chestnuts and earth. In the mouth it is the texture that is striking, it is silky but thick (almost in the way that an oyster is), with the most beguiling tapestry of fruits, florals and earth. It was a wine that keeps offering up different smells and flavours and it is such a treat to drink
