The fourth year this decade that Constance has been produced. The wine is a blend of 50% botytised fruit from Le Clos du Bourg, Le Mont and a tiny fraction from the outskirts of Le Haut Lieu. Polished, straw-gold appearance. Very restrained, with barely noticeable sweetness on the nose. Rich on entry; lush, with very good weight, texture and the juicy acidity which helps define this vintage. Excellent poise and balance. Persistent finish. A much more restrained Constance, but one that maintains and displays a sense of place
Reviews & Scores
Candied citrus, incredibly thick and dense and mouth-coating. The very definition of unspittability! Just wonderful – unctuous yet vibrant, full of fruit juiciness yet also bursting with complex caramel and honey flavours.
