A rare find of an impeccably stored wine from an overachieving producer in a region that was nearly two decades away from gaining appellation status when this wine was made. Being kept in a snow-covered cave surely helped this to age as gracefully as it has. Notes of cumin, roasted carrots, and old book leather on the nose are met with mocha and cherry cordial on the palate. The depth and balance here are extraordinary, and even wilder is the amount of life and freshness that is still present. Substantial and hauntingly complex, with a 'Pinot-esque' finesse. Stand upright for 24 hours before opening to allow any sediment to fall to the bottom, but the bottles we've opened have been largely free from this. Pour slowly and decant if necessary. Jonathan Kemp
