A precise and focused vintage showing its signature nose of confected cherry, sweet spice and rose melding with smoke, wild herbs and a saline edge.

The palate is a touch richer and more opulent than its predecessor, with dark chocolate, soy, plum and aniseed adding a savoury counterpoint to the lifted, fresh red fruit.

Grippy, slightly waxy tannin and bright acidity hold everything in balance, making for an extraordinarily long finish and guaranteeing ageing through 2035.

Scenes from a movie based on the life of Napoleon were shot on the Cinéma site the year before vineyards were introduced, which gave this wine its name. This Cuvée is a selection of barrels made from said single vineyard, a premium site in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge that was meticulously designed to produce the highest quality Pinot Noir with the planting of high-density vines using disease-free Dijon clones
