2021 Ormiale Secmillon
Feral Factor: 2
Ormiale is a rare Bordeaux that brings back the elegance that so many have lost these days. Very low yields, meticulous work in the vines (Demeter certified), fully destemmed by hand, late releases after long slow barrel aging, and a low intervention approach make for great Bordeaux.
The first Ormiale white, only 630 bottles. 50% vinified in 350l cherrywood barrel, and 50% in glass dame-jeannes, aged in the cold limestone cellars under the tower in St Emilion. Zero additions. We helped harves this one so were emotional to try it, carries a lightest pink hue from the cherrywood, so fresh and pure fresh flowers. Will show more in the coming years.
