Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .75 ha parcel**
Here too there is hint of wood lurking in the background of the strikingly fresh and even more complex aromas of violet, sauvage, forest floor and dark currant liqueur. In the same fashion as the Maréchaudes there is a velvety palate impression to the bigger and more powerful flavors that possess a highly seductive mouth feel while delivering plenty of punch on the remarkably persistent finish. This is so rich, and there is so much extract, that despite the presence of a firm tannic spine this should be approachable on the younger side yet age effortlessly for years to come.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (70), April 2018

The nose here is deep and brooding, with layers of toasted spices and hints of black fruits as well as red. The palate is initially glossy, with ultra-refined tannins framing a dense and deep core of fruit. Through the mid-palate the tannins build a fine but firm backbone for this wine, giving great harmony with the ripe fruits and taming the richness in the wine. The finish is long and deep, with great potential for the future.
