ITEM 8170131 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility
A step above the preceding samples in both juiciness and finesse; in fact, a real high-wire act of captivating sweetness and bright acidity. Very fine-grained, serious wine with excellent grip and length.
It has a more charming bouquet than the Champans, the whole bunch neatly disguised and lending discrete definition and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin and well-judged acidity.
The wonderfully refined and lilting flavors are shaped by notably fine-grained yet firm tannins on the focused and balanced finish that firms up considerably on the youthfully austere finish. This is textbook Mitans and lovely stuff.
Riper and richer cherry fruit in the aroma than the Grèves. But on the palate it has a wonderful texture – elegant, dry yet just flows across the palate in this gorgeous, finely tannic texture. Delicate and fresh and so elegant. Delicate and very persistent.
