Le Vieux Pin "Ava" 2021

Product description

Roussanne makes up most of the blend, while viognier plays a minor role. The intense heat (reaching nearly 50 degrees celcius) has made its presence known. Ava 2021 is packed with the very essence of white Rhone grapes. 

A regal wine with round and full structure, ut incredible tension on the finish to keep the wine’s spine erect and poised. A wine that will both wow in its youth and in the long term (especially after 5-8 years of bottle age). 

Today, Ava 2021 is at its best with a long decant or better yet tucked away for at least a couple of years of slumber time in the cellar. 

Canned peaches, grapefruit rind, and yellow plums are mingling with white aromatic flowers, herbal tea, and light brioche notes. We opted for more of the blend age in stainless steel rather than Oak barrels (to preserve the freshness) also noteworthy is the absence of any new oak. 

Anticipate beautiful toasted cereal notes and honey drizzled toasted brioche notes to come forward about half a dozen years post vintage.
