Non Vintage Coeur De Colline Lot 2
The new Coeur de Colline has been in the works for almost 6 years. The original Coeur de Colline was vintage dated and only came from 1 vintage. Going forward it will be a blend of multiple years. This style of blending is referred to as Solera. So, each new bottling will have a different blend but the average age of wine will get older. This first blend was made up of 2012, 2013, and 2014. Lot 2 is a blend of 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
The wine smells like dark cedar and dense chocolate with high tones of sweet milk chocolate and espresso beans. Baked Toffee and salted pecans round out this exceptional wine. Expect 20 years or more of aging potential.
Wonderful to sip all by itself, and useful for restoring warmth and energy during a long winter’s evening, the wine pairs well with small bits of rich, sweet and creamy delights: chocolate, dried fruits, toasted nuts and mellow aged Stilton blue cheese, sweet breads and biscuits.
