"Intense, focussed and expressive of its origins with a freshly cracked black pepper nose. No excess extraction, weight or oak; damson and liquorice characters to the fore. Sculpted tannins with good freshness alongside; very well balanced, with presence, character and a very long finale. Neat, true and really convincing." -DWWA

Product Description:

"Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury not only is the Rhône’s oldest continuing grower/négociant firm, but it also secured an international following very quickly.Thomas Jefferson’s visit in 1787 was its first contact with the United States; he called the wines “ justly celebrated”. The elaboration of Vidal-Fleury’s wines consists of four separate operations – the vineyard, winemaking, ageing and bottling. The superb origins of the grapes and the patience taken in maturing are what make the quality of Vidal-Fleury wines according to Winemaker Guy Sarton du Jonchay."-Winery Grapes are machine and hand harvested and transported to the winery in small crates. Fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts in temperature controlled tanks with the maceration period lasting approximately 3 weeks. The wine is aged on its lees first in tank for 3 months followed by an additional 12 months in large oak casks. The finished wine is very lightly filtered (cross flow) and not fined. The wines rest in bottle for a minimum of 6 months prior to release.Blackcurrant, violet, and pepper on the nose with a smooth palate of black fruit, mineral and a smoke.
