From tank. Dark and bright with a vibrant yellowing rusty rim. This has been kept, with minimal sulphur, exposed to cold and heat over the years, in a 2,000-litre tank under a roof outside. ‘As long as the tank is full,’ says Tramier, ‘it’s just like a big bottle.’ Lovely stuff, much livelier than most bottled 1975s! Only very slightly aged, just drying a little bit on the end but with great intensity on the mid palate.
Grapes: Merlot 60%, Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Caabernet Franc 5%
