Notes from Vine Trail:

"This was a stand-out at a recent tasting with Vincent. Given just as long barrel ageing (over six years) under voile as a Vin Jaune, Vincent deemed that this wine should not go into his Vin Jaune which had even more power and depth (does a wine really need any more?!) and will prove indestructible to time. Without quite the same power but with just as much class, this has a silkier mouthfeel and is easier to drink and perhaps more versatile with food. Notably truffley and walnuty, with a saline cut, it marries very well with white meats, sauces with a cream base, mushrooms and Comté cheese. An incredible bargain when compared to Vin Jaune pricing. For drinking now to 2060.

Taking over from father Lucien Aviet who retired five years ago was always going to be a tough act for his son Vincent to follow. Lucien, nicknamed Bacchus, is a local legend, blessed with foresight and with a wicked sense of humour, who loved to huddle around his wood-burning stove entertaining customers in his old characterful cellars filled with old foudres, cartoons and bons mots."
