Style and Identity of
Cuvée "Exception 2010"
"The tasting of Château Vieille Tour, cuvée "Exception" signed by Jérôme GOUIN, reveals a fantastic diversity of aromas that takes us on a journey through the seasons.
Winter notes of liquorice, cedar and sandalwood with an enveloping balsamic freshness, punctuated by notes of vanilla and cinnamon, reveal the essence of the terroir. Spring is dressed up in a fragrant floral garment, borrowed from elder flowers. The rather summerly fruit is pretty ripe but still crisp, with very recognizable aromas of black, juicy cherries, blackberries and bramble wood. When autumn arrives, the notes of truffle and prune compote stetch over their tertiay perfumes.
On the palate, the character, strength and generosity of the wine expresses its origins with pride. Lean and elegant at first, round and generous on the mid-palate, fresh and aromatic on the finish, Château Vieille Tour 2010 shines bright. It is ready to taste .... Enjoy ! "
