Vintage wines

Year       Rating       Drinkability Style  
 2010    keep Copious yields, so green-harvesting essential. Excellent quality and staying power.
  keep  A very hot summer and an early harvest gave rich, opulent and hedonistic wines
 2008    keep Another 2008 vintage saved by an Indian summer. Expect intense flavours but a more elegant
structure than last year. Low yielding harvest.
 2007    keepLengthy ripening season produced well-structured, aromatic wines with plentiful butripe,
 velvety tannins.
 2006    keepFor growers who worked judiciously in the vineyards, the vintage is expected to show a classic,
good structure, nice restraint on the fruit but a certain element of power as well.
