Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .75 ha parcel**
This also displays just enough wood to notice on the earthy and very serious dark berry fruit aromas that display plenty of floral, game, tea and humus elements. The big-bodied flavors possess a relatively seductive texture thanks to the abundance of palate coating dry extract that pushes the firm tannins to the background on the balanced and impressively long finish. The supporting structure is somewhat finer than that of the Rognet and overall this is a good deal less rustic than the Rognet yet make no mistake, this is a very serious wine that will require plenty of patience.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (58), April 2015

Bright ruby colour. The nose here is ripe with blueberry, red cherry, raspberry and violets, and has a hint of sweet vanilla from oak. The palate is soft, smooth, round and intense with blue fruits and cherries. There is a lovely smokiness from toasty oak and added texture from ripe tannins. The finish turns more to black forest fruits and a smoky, spicy character that lingers with amazing intensity. This is juicy and plush, but with real focus and length, a fantastic wine with excellent ageing potential.
