Apollonis: vintage 1964

Made of 100% Pinot Meunier. Quite a youthful color for a wine that’s over 40 years The aroma is just fantastic with straw, black currant, old library, polishing wax, licorice, goose liver paté, forest floor and mushrooms, coffee and green gooseberries. It has a lovely concentrated but elegant mouthfeel. On the palate you get smoked lemon, cognac, blackcurrant and lots of tertiary notes. Quite a peculiar finish with green notes of green peppercorns and salted lemon and cigar smoke which follows into a dry cut but then suddenly you get a trail of youthful acidity. I don’t think I ever had something like this. A moment to cherish.
