I have read good things about this 08, so I bought a bottle. More bottles will follow.
2008 Cuvée Paradis, Alfred Gratien
The nose is luscious, cool and chalky with notes of pickled ginger, white flowers, dried out passion fruit, wet asphalt and dry bread. Very deep and fine. A fine, savoury nose with a touch of salt.
The taste is cool, high-strung and refined with notes of lemon peel, ginger, sweet mineral and dried flowers. A long, steely, fine finish. This will age well. Lovely.
