First made in 1976, this wine took the world by storm, being included in the 'World's best dozen' at the Paris wine awards. Only made in years where the Pinot Noir is of high enough quality, this is an extremely rare wine. This vintage, only 400 dozen were produced. A very savoury, earthy style of Pinot Noir, with not a lot of new oak (only 10%), but a lovely perfumed lift from 30% whole bunches.

Red fruits, spicy and bunchy, a little smoky and reductive, slight Hunter earthiness, flicker of toasty vanilla oak. Medium bodied, lovely tickle of graphite tannin, savoury but fresh strawberry and lightness of touch throughout, good finish, firm but fresh. Tastes like Pinot, it’s not a dry red, that’s for sure. It will shine with a little more bottle age to bring out further complexity. It’s a very good Vat 6.
