"The stunning 1980 Millesime is a compelling wine of magnificent complexity and delicacy. It reveals aromas and flavors of sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, dried molasses, as well as plums. It is pure, fresh, smooth as silk, and possesses and an extraordinarily long, voluptuous finish.." Wine advocate
1980 MILLESIME goes well with game, foie gras and thrills chocolate lovers.
NOSE: Intense notes of chocolate and fresh figs are followed by a dazzling peppermint finish.
MOUTH: The palate is surprising, at once because of its frank and strong attack and because of its surprising acidity for a wine of this age.
