|2000 Picardy Tete de Cuvee|
This release of the Tete de Cuvee has an incredibly complex aroma profile, so beguiling as to be difficult to describe. Bready, biscuity, musk, ethereally perfumed, briar, leatherwood honey and truffle are a few appropriate descriptors. Palate weight and concentration are exceptional, with sweet fruit balanced by a hint of cherry pith sourness. Structure is provided by balanced acidity and lots of ripe, very finely grained tannins.
This wines incredible complexity and concentration can be attributed to very low yields and a cool, dry vintage.
