An intensely spicy nose features notes of ripe black pinot fruit and plenty of floral influence in the form of violet and lavender scents. As would be expected this possesses plenty of size and weight with excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a powerful, palate coating and wonderfully long finish. This is a serious wine that will need at least 10 to 12 years to be approachable. Drink 2026+

Somewhat surprisingly given the usual Malconsorts trait of being quite inexpressive young, this is even spicier than the Beaux Monts with its slightly riper and darker fruit profile. On the other hand, as would be expected this is notably bigger, richer and more concentrated with an opulent mid-palate to the markedly muscular full-bodied flavors that possess impressive amounts of structure-buffering dry extract on the strikingly long finish. This is quite firm without being hard and this will need at least 15 years to arrive at its peak.
