NEW from Christophe Pichon

The newest vintage from Rhone star Christophe Pichon is drinking extremely well - but has plenty of ageing potential. Small yields and old vines produce grapes that are concentrated and show enormous typicality. The grapes are harvested by hand and selected on sorting tables. The wine spends 13 months in oak barrels - 75% in new oak and 25% in 1 year old casks.

Glorious dark ruby colour with oak and vanilla on the nose, giving way to cassis and blueberry. Rich, savoury palate with ripe tannins. Well-balanced with a long, pleasant finish. Will continue to improve with age.
