The 2016 vintage witnessed the first drought recovery year which invigorated the vineyard. This resulted in a lush canopy that nurtured the fruit into ripeness. The nose leads with an aroma of wild strawberry with hints of violets, black cherries, and sandalwood. The initial forward fruit gives way to the velvety mid palate from the Pommard clone that is laced with mineral extractions from the calcareous soil of Windward Vineyard. The lingering finish, with a touch of phenolics from Seguin Moreau cooperage in so young a wine, promises this 2016 vintage will drink beautifully now and cellar very well over the next 15 years - à votresanté
