2018 Sine Fine
The great poet from Tang Dynasty Po Chü-i writes:
On high, we’d be two love birds flying wing to wing,
On earth, two trees with branches twined from spring to spring.
Inseparable birds are a classic symbol of love and intimacy in Chinese culture. With one set of wings, the blue bird and the red bird are bound together forever, and will never separate. Like the birds, the intense passion and love of our newlywed friend Benoit Touquette has been beautifully translated into this wine.
“The 2018 Fairest Creature Sine Fine, part of a one-of-a-kind trilogy, exhibits a dense purple color and an incredible bouquet of blackcurrants, violets, cassis, smoke tobacco, and graphite. This is a rich, full-bodied wine, extremely seductive and creamy, and hedonistic with ripe, well-integrated tannins and no edges. It’s suitable for instant pleasure or cellaring. Its long everlasting finish will make you wonder: ‘Why should I wait?’”
