Elegant nose with loads of dark fruit, licorice and crushed chalk. Full-bodied and wonderfully textured on the palate with well-dosed fine tannins and attractive red fruit. Enjoyable long finish. Try in 2015.

Average age of the vines is 30 years old planted on a limestone plateau and limestone/clay hillsides. Five coopers are used : 40% Taransaud 15% Vicard 15% Saury 15% Berthomieu and 15% Nadalié. Alcohol at 14.5%. Cranberry and cherry pop out of the glass followed by aromas of cola cocoa powder and soy. Blueberry and kirsch appear on the palate with pepper and cedar spice framed by olive and licorice with sage and rosemary picking up on the lingering finish. The mouthfeel is generous and expansive. Drink 2015 to 2020. Michel Rolland consults. Tasted twice.
