2008 Bonny Doon Vin Cigare Volant Magnum 1.5L

Share on Facebook

Cool earth is the first thing you smell when you open a bottle of the '08 Cigare Volant, followed by the comforting fragrance of peppermint and raspberry. Tasting the wine, one is struck by its bright acidity and black fruit – mulberry, cassis and black raspberry – coupled with a discreet earthiness (telegraphed, as it were, in the nose). The tannins are gentle, but the wine still possesses a strong upright spine; every element stands in very exquisite balance.



Utterly delicious and approachable now – especially brilliant with game, lamb and roasted meats – the wine will undoubtedly repay bottle ageing for many (10-15) years hence.



Blend: 45% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre, 7% Cinsault, 5% Carignane
