Revealing good integration of oak (often an issue with young unbottled La Clemence) as well as excellent ripeness plenty of blackberry and boysenberry fruit licorice and subtle oak the 2011 possesses excellent texture and medium to full body. It should drink well for a decade or more.

Opaque garnet color with translucent purple rim. Salinity and high toned seashell aromas suggestive of limestone on the nose. Primary raspberry flavors dominate the entry with cola nut sweet red licorice and subtle sweet tobacco joining as the palate enfolds. The angular bone dry finish features cedar a hint of minerals and tea. Pretty and precise now this will evolve with 2 or 3 years of bottle age. Fewer than 500 cases produced.
