About the Wine:
Very ripe nose with hints of lime blossom. Quite open. Very big palate entry, just this side of oily with a beguiling hint of nuttiness. Lovely sprightly acidity - so much so that this wine was wonderfully refreshing even when tasted at room temperature - and big, broad and beefy. Tasted separately from the other wines in this range. Long but I would be surprised if this were the longest lasting Clos Ste Hune. There’s also a more marked astringency on the finish than most other vintages at this point, suggesting the grape skins were unusually thick.
