"A red wine with a rather dense robe; the body is ruby, but the leg indicates a certain evolution. The nose is expressive, with a nice "spicy" touch; I feel notes of leather, tobacco, dry spices. The wine remains as fruity as ever, almost with a slightly sweet sensation. The aromas are ripe, with notes of sweet plum and sweet red berries. There is a hint of oak but well integrated and a slight roasted side. Full and supple on the palate; the tannins are well softened. I find this sweet fruity character, with plum, red berry notes, and a pinch more of that spice box. Fairly round and smooth in texture. Of a beautiful complexity, we find these persistent flavours in the finish. "Andreas Larsson, Best Sommelier of the World 2007.
This is THE "confidential" cuvée par excellence, produced by an "out of the ordinary" vinification: the whole bunches of grapes are tined in micro-vinifiers. Orbite is also distinguished by a different blend for each vintage and we only produce it in the best years.
On fine and elegant dishes, just like this wine. To be decanted two hours beforehand to discover all its complexity.
During a festive meal, with lovers of fine wine
