1993 Chateau De Pibarnon Vieux Marc De Bandol 700mL
Made from de-stemmed Mourvèdre marcs. At the end of the vinification, when the wine is racked-off, the red marcs, that come out of the press, are de-stemmed and ensiled in tanks sheltered from the air. It is the "méthode bourguignonne". The distillation starts when wines are finished and put in oak casks, generally at the very beginning of January.
To taste an old marc, choose "chimney"cognac glasses, instead of the classical round ones. This marc is not only elegant, but really interesting thanks to its strength. It is no longer aggressive. The nose is quite suave, with complex aromas of raisins, plum, prune, and a hint of liquorice. A powerful and ample mouth, followed by a long and elegant final.
