Tasting Notes

As is often the case this is easily the most floral-inflected nose in the range, and this includes the Clos Sorbès, with its lavender, lilac, violet, red and white rose, dark cherry and earth-suffused aromas. There is fine intensity and detail to the medium-bodied flavors that display ample minerality on the delicious and balanced finale. I was surprised though by the absence of the usual excellent complexity though it's entirely possible that this will develop more than I presently imagine with time in bottle.

Bright, dark red. Black cherry, licorice and spices on the nose. Seriously concentrated flavors of raspberry and saline minerality display noteworthy tactile depth and energy. Densely packed, sweet and long, with very suave tannins.
