2021 “Eluvium”

Tasted on 24 March 2024 by Werner Elflein

Cuvée made from 78 % Merlot and 22 % Petit Verdot. Opaque black-red. Concentrated bouquet of blackberry and other black berries, characterized by dark roasted aromas. Still a little lactic. On the palate, the fruit is still clearly coated in fine-grained and sandy tannins. Powerful body, enormous density. Very long and persistent. The “Eluvium” is absolutely not intended for early consumption. It makes a promise for the future and should fulfill this promise after ten years at the earliest, probably even much later. It is currently still closed and needs a lot of air. Anyone who cannot or does not want to wait (which would be a shame) should definitely reach for the Ovarius decanter. A great interpretation of Bordeaux.
