Tasting Notes

This is aromatically quite similar to the Corbeaux if perhaps just slightly more elegant. The mouthfeel of the middle weight flavors is both sleeker and more energetic while exuding a subtle salinity on the sneaky long finish that also displays touches of bitter pit fruit character and warmth on the almost painfully intense finale. This is also very powerful, indeed it's unusually powerful for Fonteny and the chewy tannins make clear that it is going to need at least a decade to become sufficiently civilized to enjoy.
