Tasting Notes

Moderately firm reduction presently dominates the nose. By contrast there is a very different mouth feel to the bold, robust and much bigger broad-shouldered flavors compared to those of the Griotte that are almost as mineral-driven while displaying plenty of muscle and punch on the gorgeously complex, overtly austere and hugely long finale.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (62), April 2016

Bright ruby-red. Very ripe but fresh aromas of black cherry, violet and pungent minerals are complicated by a barbecue note (Saouma refered to this quality as "a thin-soil cooked note."). Very suave and fine-grained, with an ineffable high note of blood orange giving penetration and cut to the sweet middle palate. Juicy, rather wild wine with terrific intensity to its crunchy, urgent dark fruit flavors. One of Saouma's two growers vinified with some whole clusters in the bottom of the tank. As zesty as this wine is, it also shows the fatness of 2015.
