JJ Buckley, April 2009
Always a top performer for the region in this price point! Deep garnet/ruby color with purple rim and brilliant intensity. Fresh ripe crushed berry with plus concentration and some richness in the mid-palate. This... Always a top performer for the region in this price point! Deep garnet/ruby color with purple rim and brilliant intensity. Fresh ripe crushed berry with plus concentration and some richness in the mid-palate. This medium to full bodied wine shows what Juliette Becot told me at our JJB Ladies of Bordeaux dinner last year where she employs the new technique of delestage! This is where the fermenting juice is drained from the tank during primary fermentation and gently pumped back over the must (skins stems and seeds). This delestage technique is where the tannins are sort of lengthened and oxygenated and the wine benefits with a fleshy rich mid-palate.
