In its first vintage of existence, this cuvée is an instant classic! Sourced from three different plots, averaging fifty-five years of age, it is very “Guillemot”—showcasing bright acidity and red fruit; savory with hints of undergrowth. The wine is youthful and energetic, an exciting addition to the domaine’s masterful lineup.

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
