Named after the oak trees close to the vineyard and aged an extra year, this cuvée is always impressive. It has dark, dense tannins as well as powerful black-cherry fruits and a beautifully perfumed aftertaste. Rich and structured, the wine will age well. (RV)
Lucien Lardy’s seventy-plus year-old vines in les Chênes have done very well in the torrid summer of 2015, and couples with Monsieur Lardy’s practice of fermentation with indigenous yeasts and elevage in older barrels, the wine has turned out very well indeed. The bouquet is deep and pure, offering up scents of black cherries, gamebird, fresh herbs, a touch of youthful stemminess, a fine base of soil and an exotic touch of cola in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full, complex and already velvety on the attack, with a rock solid core, some backend tannin and a long, complex and very nicely balanced finish. This has the deeper-pitched profile of the vintage, which pokes out a bit on the backend, but it remains fairly light on its feet and is really a successful example of the vintage.
