Millésimé 2008

Personality

Every year is not driven to become a vintage in Duménil House. 2007 will remain the ... unexpected year.

Wind very strong as well as sun very present have contributed to an elegant balance of aromas, able to guard an exceptional cellaring potential, required at Duménil beyond the minimum legal requirement of 3 years.

Tasting Notes

Tasty nose, dry apricots, damson, crystallised orange and exotic fruits such as mango will naturally be followed by notes of honey and toasted with brioche.
Mouthfeel silky texture and rich flavour is balanced by a pleasant sensation of freshness on the palate, caused by a slight citrus sensation.
Elegance, finesse and purity is the signature of this Duménil Vintage 2007. Match with
Foie Gras, red meat, venaison
