The final blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon hit 13.5% alcohol which is a lot lower than I would have suspected given the winemaker and the terroir. Sweet black currant and blackberry fruit intertwined with notions of licorice camphor and white flowers are found in this beautifully rich opulent 2010. The finish is soft and velvety textured. It should drink well for 15+ years.

This small 1 hectare biodynamically farmed vineyard is planted on sand and gravel soils. From a mix of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon the wine reached 14% alcohol which is lower than what they achieved in 2009. With scents of jammy black raspberries stone and licorice this round textured wine ends with a licorice and sweet black cherry finish.

A little jamy with interesting plum and cherry. Full and round.

This one-hectare vineyard belongs to the régisseur of Château Clos Fourtet Tony Ballu and is planted with in sandy-gravel topsoil atop a deep gravelly subsoil. Since 2007 the vineyard is farmed biodynamically. Yields were a meager 16 hls/ha. Unfined and lightly filtered. The 2010 is very bright on the nose with aromas of blueberry and blackberry liqueur. Quite pretty floral and layered with good complexity. This is a unique unheralded wine from great terroir. Stéphane Derenoncourt consults on this small production of less than 200 cases.
