(from a .375 ha parcel situated by La Grande Rue). A supremely elegant combination of very discreet wood and natural spice together with very fresh red berry and plum aromas complements to perfection the rich yet incredibly fine middle weight flavors that are wonderfully seductive, complex and hugely long. This is textbook RSV as it is a wine of grace and finesse. This concentrated yet refined effort should also be a stunner in time. 95/2021+
