Description

A surprising thing about Racine du Temps is that it is always drinkable. Another is that 90-year-old vines can produce a wine not only with intensity (which we expect) but full of energy and brightness (which we don’t). It is beautifully elegant and balanced, with clearly defined floral red fruit, lots of fine tannins and a very long black saline finish.
