Bottle with 4.5 cm fill under the cork. Beguiling wine. Much lighter than the St.Vivant and almost opaque. Sensual wine that is quite subtle and effortlessly marries redberry fruit and a light, smokey minerality. Expected cold tea or some other sign of age, but it was full of life and quite a revaluation - how good must a high fill wine be from a top vintage ?
Drinks effortlessly and seamlessly. Smooth and balanced. Pungent spice, slight sous bois and hawthorne. When put in a narrower Zalto universal glass there was a slightly sweet charming fragrance. Translucent dark amber or light rust color tone.
