    The Griffe is more open and accessible now then the Tardive, and doesn't really taste oaky, so I guess the wood was older or neutral. I'm not sure if the vines are different then the Tardive or just the elevage is different.
    The Griffe is really great for my taste.

    Found 5 of these at the Co-op. I opened CT from my iPhone, saw your note and bought all of them.
