Description

This wine is a collaboration between Prophet’s Rock winemaker Paul Pujol and esteemed French winemaker François Millet from Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy. Former winemaker at Comte George de Vogüé for 35 vintages, François continues to make wine in Burgundy with his family under ‘François Millet et Fils’ and with us in New Zealand. Since the first release in 2015, this wine has been sourced exclusively from the same parcel on their small Home Vineyard site up in the hills of Bendigo sub-region, Central Otago. Only 319 cases were made, if you are seeing this on the shelf, there is only one option, grab it or the person next to you will. Oh for the record the 2016 was named one of the “25 wines to try before you die, as picked by London’s most influential drinkers” by the Evening Standard. We couldn’t agree more!

Smells

a sensation bouquet that shows integration, precision, and pristine fruit, red cherries, rose petals, exotic spice with a wonderful herbal layering suggestive of crushed thyme, rosemary, and lavender.

Tastes

a wine in its youth right now and with time in the bottle this wine will evolve savoury complexity, taking to even further heights, if that is possible. A focused core of red berry fruits charges the length of the palate with textural tannins that coat your tongue, cheeks and the roof of your mouth. The lingering length is compelling and its hard to stop there, as the descriptives just keep coming. Hide in a temperature-controlled cellar for 10years+ and reap the rewards.
