CVNE, Monopole Barrel Fermented Rioja 1993
Lovely pale golden colour. Yeasty, buttery, tropical fruit nose and good weight on the palate with luscious fruit, buttery oak and hints of cinnamon spice. Finish is very pure and quite long. Tastes like a decent white burgundy. Very good. (03/96). updated Still drinking very well indeed. Gloriously complex, bready, minerally, non-fruit characteristics evolving. Must try the latest vintage. (12/97).
