Valley View

Paul Dethune 2005 Grand Cru

"I loved the complexity of the nose of this wine that had been aged in bottle until June 2014. The blend was 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, initially aged as base wines in 32-hl oak vats with malolactic conversion fully completed. The Chardonnay element in this relatively low-acid vintage seems to have kept the wine taut and lively but it has great layers of flavour and demands attention.

This is not an aperitif wine but one to be savoured with food. The persistence is hugely impressive and, just for the record, I thought it would probably drink well until 2025."  - Jancis Robinson
