The 2014 vintage produced wines that are more accessible at a younger age than most vintages. Although accessible, the wine will continually improve over the next 10 years at which point the wine will achieve it’s optimal drinkability for at least a further five years. The 2006 growing season was very similar to the 2014 vintage and we expect the vintages to age similarly. When drinking this wine in the first 6 years from vintage we do suggest decanting it for an hour or two before serving to open up the bouquet and soften the tannins.
Matching FoodsRare beef fillet done in a Chinese barbecue sauce would make this wine come alive, or even a Carpaccio with an anchovy cream and a hint of truffle oil.
