The 2005 vintage displays enticing aromas of fresh red berry fruits, married to the complexity of extended tirage maturation, along with brioche-like yeast, nougat and exotic spices.
Bright and fresh strawberry fruit dominate the initial flavour rise which gives way to complex secondary characters of truffle and yeast extract. This wine has great structural elegance with an impeccable balance of tannin, natural acidity and dosage.
The 2005 vintage experienced higher levels of rain during the winter and warm water conditions in the spring; this provided the basis for a strong canopy and good vine health.
