The vineyards are all steeply terraced and must be worked and harvested manually. In Neal Rosenthal's entire experience, he has encountered no one who takes better care nor manages a vineyard with the talent of the Levet family.
This wine is aged for thirty to thirty-six months prior to bottling. It is, quite simply, a ferocious wine, unique in its uninhibited expression of the smells and flavors of the appellation. No compromise is brooked here. The result is a wine that is controversial, too "wild" for many but, for Rosenthal, one of the most elite wines in their personal pantheon.
