75cl * 14.5% ABV * Rhone, France
To celebrate the 100 years since the planting of the most beautiful plot in the domaine, the Brunel family decided to create a special cuvee issued specifically from this plot. Debatably one of the best wines every produced by the estate, it has been pitted as the same level as the legendary 1998 and 2010 vintages. This is a seriously silky, sensuous number showing no signs of being over cooked or lacking in purity. Like many of the 2016s, this will go down as one of the 'great' years of the Rhone Valley. Extraordinarily complex and rich, this would make a great partner to game and strongly-flavoured beef dishes. Drinking now to 2030.
