Editor note: Translate to English Kühle und herbe, deutlich mineralische und bitterlich-kräuterige Nase mit viel Pfirsicharoma sowie Anklängen an Zitrusfrüchten und einem Hauch schwarzer Beeren. Feinsaftige Frucht mit viel pflanzlicher und auch erdig-mineralischer Würze, sehr feine Säure, ganz leichter Gerbstoff, leicht süßlicher Schmelz am Gaumen, hat Kraft, wirkt recht traditionell, sehr guter, feinsaftiger, leicht süßlicher, aber auch herb-pflanzlicher und mineralischer Abgang.

The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...
