The wine boasts a beautiful polished gold robe. Effervescence is subdued but still present. The nose is mature and incredibly complex, with fruity notes of jam (clementine), vegetal tones (dark tobacco) and woody aromas (cedar) against a background of spices. Balance in the mouth is perfect with an initial forthrightness giving way to an unending finish underpinned with pastry notes.
Thanks to its tremendous ageing potential, the 1980 Vintage Bottle will continue to develop well for more than 6 years.
