Jean Michel Dupre likens his venerable vines to wizened elders, imbued with the rooted wisdom of the ancient granite soils upon which they still manage to survive. One might inject a philosophical note, and call this quality the 'Ding an sich' of the vines, like the two surviving Beatles (Kant buy me love!). Oh well…. Dupre sources most of his fruit from sites over 70 years old, and the wines are a graceful embodiment of that timespan, with concentrated black fruit flavors that descend upon the palate in waves of potpourri spice and pleasantly ripened berries. Serve slightly chilled with a plate of charcuterie.
