This was the year of the “great heat wave”, leading one to expect wines lacking in harmony and freshness. This is not the case here: although this wine is not yet at its peak, it displays a pleasant balance and a charming, fruity character. It would be best to wait until 2007 to begin appreciating it fully, taking care to decant the wine before service. Until then, we can take pleasure in tracking its evolution and note its youthful appeal as it accompanies a veal roast with mushrooms. Satisfaction guaranteed.
