2022 will mark the third bottling of JOLOTAGE Reserve. 17% of the blend enjoyed extended barrel aging in French Oak from the 2020 vintage. 83% from the 2021 vintage was aged in French Oak.
This third bottling of JOLOTAGE Reserve represents the very best JOLOTAGE blend that we feel exemplifies the nuances and complexities of our prior releases. This is a combination of extended barrel aging and a blending of different vintages to create a one of a kind JOLOTAGE boasting dark fruit, mocha, leather and polished tannins yielding a long, lush and firm finish.
