Savory herbs, roses, kirsch, raspberries, and cherry nuances are easy to find. On the palate the wine is fresh, silky and lively. Medium-bodied, with a nice sweetness to all the reds fruits, there is a gorgeous sense of purity in the elegant finish. Drink from 2022 - 2035 93 Points

When to Drink Domaine Albin Jacumin, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Domaine Albin Jacumin can be enjoyed on the young side. Young vintages can be popped and poured, or decanted for an hour so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Albin Jacumin is usually better with 2-5 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages, the wine should be consumed within 8-12 years after the vintage.
