Ratings and Tasting Notes:From the Domaine: The grapes come from one of our oldest vineyards, planted in 1955 by Bernard Defaix and exceptionally well exposed to the sun (S-SE). This “cuvée” is partially fermented in oak barrels. Half of the wine is fermented in barrels and remains for 12 months on fine lees with regular "batonnage". After tasting, this wine aged in barrels is blended with the same“cuvée” that has been aged in stainless steel tanks. The final blend is bottled 18 months after the harvest. This “cuvée” Reserve conveys all of the Côte de Lechet's power. The bouquet marries floral elegance with the mineral intensity of the terroir. The palette is characterised by roundness, plenitude, richness and length. Excellent when served with salmon or other fish delicacies.
