Le Lombard is rich, complex wine with a mellow nose of white blossom and hone accompainied by roasty toasted flavours. On the palate, it is fat and opulent yet balanced by the natural acidity. Le Lombard has attractive purity, with a lingering hint of bitterness on it's long finish. It is made from old vines (40 years) facing east/southeast, on the slopes of Coteau de Verlieu. This wine can be drunk for the primary aromas up to 3-4 years, but also for the secondary aromas from 6-10 years.
JOSH RAYNOLDS - VINOUS
Deep ruby. Fresh cherry and cassis scents are complemented by suggestions of cracked pepper and olive paste. Supple blackberry, bitter cherry and dark chocolate flavors show very good energy and turn sweeter on the back half. Silky, slow-building tannins lend shape and grip to the firm, nervy finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity. Raised in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels of varying size.
