Sour cherries and sweet vanilla wrapped up in a blanket of dried fruits. If you recently tried the 2016 vintage, then be prepared for a huge difference. This pivolet, or baby wine, is unfiltered — the resin and tannins are still there to swirl under the nose. This gives a strong, mature taste when young, but with aeration the wine opens up and shows extreme balance, with cracking acidity and a firm length. No doubt about it — this is now a Pomerol of immense breeding.
