"This is a special bottling of Les Bournais, produced from ungrafted vines. It has more ripe quince and pear fruit on the nose, with aniseed touches and an underlying salty tang. The palate is vibrant and precise, with a lovely airy texture." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"From a small planting in the prized Bournais vineyard, these vines are ungrafted, planted on their own roots.  Just a couple barrels of this beauty were made in only the finest vintages. To get a good understanding of why some great producers have replanted vines without American root stock, risking the destruction caused by phylloxera root louse, compare the two cuvées produced from this vineyard.  The nose is very fine already showing hints of exotic fruit, spice and some quince.  In the mouth, the limestone bedrock that vines are growing in really leave their mark.  Great acidity will carry this wine through the ages." 

Alcohol: 14.5%
