Red wine

Thierry Allemand, Chaillot 2016

RRP £190.00

A very complete and harmonious vintage (for all the heat of midsummer), 2016 provides a perfect showcase for Allemand’s younger-vine cuvée – a somewhat inaccurate epithet in this instance, since most of the vines are more than 40 years old. There has been no destemming, and the wine was left on its lees, quietly, for over two years, with racking eschewed. Patience and the first pangs of bottle age have yielded a wonderfully harmonious example: the scents of violet, loganberry, smoke and truffle are gaining in confidence, and the robe of tannin is magisterial in its authority and promise.
