A compilation of our finest and most regal casks procured from the Hoffmann families two oldest plantings; DW-OLD & ER-27.
The gnarled thicket of DW-OLD was sown between 1888 & 1912 with the adjacent ER-27 planted in 1927. The pair reigned supreme amidst the moist and bountiful 2017 season, yielding a relaxed and plush rendition of the Hoffmann’s deep red earths.
These 19 Burgundian Pièces were carefully assembled following their second winter having endured a 77 week elevage. Bottles were filled without filtration, fining or sparging (the removal of naturally occurring oxygen & C02) and all handling was completed via gravity prior to bottling.
Yields ranged between 31 & 43 hectolitres per hectare.
4961 bottles were filled.
