The Emilien is neither overly exuberant nor garishly fruit-for- ward, yet deep and inviting and truly dazzling. On the palate, it is held in form by the glistening acidity that characterizes Le Puy in every vintage even as it reveals its myriad nuances of flavor and inner-mouth perfume. Drinking the Emilien is an experience that belies its makers’ trust in the health of their fruit and the natural processes that, without coercion or sculpting, transform it into wine.
The wine is fermented in concrete and is aged for 2 years in barrel, both large and small but never any new.
