2019 ()

(new 300-litre cask) quite a dark red; floral-raspberry airs feature in a graceful bouquet. The palate is spinal and interesting, holds back well, carries real naked truth, Burgundian finesse, is super pointu, detailed, will be STGT wine after 7-8 years. 22 years. This will be around €60, against the €35 of the regular Aubert. Feb 2020
