Vieilles Vignes 2011


Made from truly ancient vines on the best parcels of the domain at a low density makes this a flagship wine for Laffitte-Teston.  Hearty flavours with a high tanin content from raging in new barrels makes this wine excellent for laying down for up to 15 years or possibly more.
