TOB exclusive import: Domaine du Haut Montlong les Vents d'Anges Bergerac red 2016
Domaine du Haut Montlong "Les Vents d'Anges" Bergerac red 2016. 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.
Hand picked and 100% barrel matured, this is the domaine's icon red wine. Dark purple colour, full throttle aromatics, intense berry fruit, rose petals, meat, toast, oak, smoky bacon, tobacco leaf, anise. Palate has firm grip, sappy extract, fresh edge, and determined length. Starting to soften but 2016 was an outstanding vintage with gripping tannin and excellent cellar potential so this is a wine that benefits from decanting to help it open up and soften. Alternatively, it can be opened the night before and kept with the cork replaced until ready to serve. 14%.
Drink now to 2035.
