Shows intensity and brightness. Exciting. Top for the appellation. Needs five to six years to come together, but already gorgeous. Better after 2024.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it features warm plums, blackberry pie and wild blueberries aromas with touches of underbrush and menthol plus a waft of roses. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and plush with a good fruit core and perfumed finish. About 5,416 cases produced.- LPB

Decanter,
Modern and polished in style, showing red fruit notes with a touch of well-integrated, quality oak. The palate is slightly sweet but with subtle power and finely honed tannins. Well crafted and serious

Black cherries, white flowers, spice, and hints of limestone-like minerality all flow to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant 2016 that has loads to love. As usual, it’s impeccably made and represents a good value. Drink it over the coming decade or so.

Licorice, black cherry and dark chocolate notes are in the nose, and the mouth. Soft, round, forward and plush, this will be even better in a few years, although, it will be fine to drink on release.

Soft, round, forward and plush, this will be even better in a few years, although, it will be fine to drink on release. The wine was made from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

Solidly built, featuring a core of gently warmed cassis and blackberry paste flavors, with fresh tobacco leaf and light incense notes. A subtle juniper echo runs through the finish.
