The grapes from 35-year-old vines have undergone ageing in 600 litre barrels blended with 30% wine that has been aged in stainless steel tanks. The French oak adds a complexity that suits the purity from the stainless steel. The white gold colour evokes chardonnay at full ripeness. The wine is full and the oyster shells that make up the subsoil leave unique hint of saltiness. The initial nose is vinous and full, with delicate wood notes that will benefit from cellaring and decanting. 2017 will be its apogee.
