(just 5 barrels made in 2016, vs. a normal 12): Aromas of raspberry and spices, plus a slight green note. Sweet and supple in the mouth, with its red fruit flavors complicated by smoky soil tones. Finishes with good length and lighter tannins than most Fixins. Humbert vinified these 55-year-old vines without doing any pigeage, only twice-daily pumpovers.
