2018 Stéphane Bernaudeau Les Ongles
A child of the region and an experienced cyclist, Stéphane Bernaudeau is a very discreet, calm and determined winemaker who spent more than ten years alongside Mark Angeli before gradually creating his domain in 2000.
He now tends 2.5 hectares of old vines. This wines, like all the greats, has a real density without any heaviness. Complexity and depth with a delicate salty reduction. The palate is always precise, with ripe vibrant tension balanced by subtle lees contact which lend an unctuous quality that buttresses the tension. The core is always dense, yet again without any heaviness and the wines always have excellent length. Super wine.
