Vintage 2020

Cask sample. Surprisingly broad and ripe on the palate for an Hautes-Côtes. Just a little one-dimensional although there is an interesting mineral finish. 15.5 Ripe apricot fruit on the generous aroma. Medium- full and creamy, with a touch of pithy apricot skin and plenty of freshness and tension. Almond kernel and sapidity to finish. Yummy.
