Editor note: Tart, firm and deep, still closed, nutty and lightly vegetal fragrance with cool, clear yellow fruity aromas, smoke, fresh mushrooms and floral nuances. Brilliantly pure, cool, restrained, very bright, fine-juicy fruit, smoky, yeasty, nutty and vegetal tones, again a little mushroom, good persistence, moderate woody hints, very fine acidity and still very slightly drying tannin, clear, rather bright minerality in the background, a hint of sage, very good, firm, tangy and again slightly smoky finish. Still needs to mature.

But even before that, imported wine was drunk, as evidenced by a Greek clay wine bottle from around 400 BC found in a Celtic grave. The oldest vineyards were on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their long valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic wine-growing areas today. Viticulture was founded by the colonisation of Gaul by the Greeks and then brought to perfection by Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the RhôneRhône...
