The generous 1990 harvest was of an extraordinary quality. Although a cool spring brought on heavy frosts, an uncommonly hot summer allowed for unparalleled maturation on the vines. This resulting 1990 vintage provides a depth of aromatic complexity that is both unexpected and rarely achieved in history.

Note from the Cellar Master
Initial notes of white tobacco mingle with subtle aromas of raw cocoa. Expressive and fresh, powerful notes of dried herbs unfold upon the senses underpinned by a hint of fresh walnuts. On the palate this wine is an aromatic revelation, remarkable in its evolution from start to finish.
