Troisième Mi-Temps, Pic St. Loup, 2007
15th July 2009
Tasted last night - the Troisième Mi-Temps, Pic St. Loup, 2007 from Saint Daumary, which arrived yesterday. Of course it's infanticide - this lovely wine will drink for years - but we wine professionals like our meat rare and our wine vital. The colour is sumptuous, and if you decant it the perfume is sensational too, ripe blackcurrant with malted touches. Plenty of mocha oak up front, and lush fruit, but what really marks this wine are those indefinable, lifted aromatics that only wines grown on limestone show. Truly fine, ageworthy wine, with a real sense of terroir, for £11.25 a bottle - so some is going into my cellar immediately.
