The block is divided in two parts, an old one of about 60 years old and a younger part which is about 25 years old. 100% whole cluster fermentation. 80% new oak.

BurghoundLike the Reignots this is closed and brooding at present though aggressive swirling grudgingly liberates cool, pure and airy red berry fruit scents along with a profusion of floral elements. There is a lovely sense of energy to the intensely mineral-driven, focused, precise and driving medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a moderately austere and gorgeously sustained finale. This is very Latricières and should age accordingly.
