Vin de Constance 2007
Rounder, fruitier, with that blade of acidity clothed in flesh, with toffee and bitter marmalade notes, very aromatic and spicy. More new oak was being used by this date, but it’s perfectly integrated into the wine and just shows itself as slightly more weight at the centre. Huge finish.
