Tasting Notes

APRICOT - LEMON CONFIT - SAVORY

"We think of Les Alliés as a wine that reveals itself to us over the course of the long winter. During this period, certain barrels may "sing" for a few days then fade for some time before coming back to life in the spring. Other barrels from other sites may never stand up and shout, but consistently charm with a balance of fruit, mineral, and savor. This is the story of the 2019 Les Alliés, a blend of barrels from sites that we could always turn to to bring joy." - Julia, Cellar Master
