The vintage corresponds to the year of the harvest. The youngest vintages sold by DARTIGALONGUE have been ageing for at least 15 years in 400 litre oak barrels.
Every vintage is unique and has its own personality. Its characteristics evolve from year to year with the ageing and the « angel’s share » (3 to 4 % of evaporation each year in wood).
The bottling is done by hand very regularly and the bottling date is always indicated on the back label.
Nose: spices, white blossom, walnuts, noble rancio.
Mouth: The tannins are silky and give great length with a remarkable freshness for a Vintage of this age.
