This was a nice surprise, a basic CNdP bought recently at auction that probably only cost a few euros on release. Featuring an effusive nose of macerated cherry, iron, dates and blood orange, the palate is less spectacular but pleasant nonetheless, quite charming on entry but quickly fading. I cooked roast shoulder of lamb tonight with a lavender jus, and this was an apt pairing.
Edit: on night two, this had opened up and was a tremendous wine — 5 months ago
Color is amber with lots of variation. Still retains some sweet red fruit amongst the dusty tanning. — 3 days ago

Unfortunately my bottle was compromised and some air entered. But the vinegar at the top quickly came off revealing an intense powerful wine although with some balsamic notes. Great with our lamb souvlaki. — 5 months ago
Easy drinking, had it with a curry, prob not the best pairing 🤔 — 10 days ago
Nice, rich, enticing aroma of blackberries & fresh black plumsc with spicy cedar and a fresh whiff of lavender. Ther’s a tiny hint of freshly cracked black pepper and allspice. Warm & rich yet nicely fresh & juicy.
On the palate this is medium bodied with beautiful, velvety, plush, juicy tannins. So finely polished. Nicely balanced with the acidity still fresh and while the fruit is slowly starting to show some age, it’s still juicy - I like the savoury, earthy side. Good depth and length, too.
This has to be peaking right now and is drinking very nicely. — 2 months ago
Medium ruby in color; cherries, crushed gravel, and raspberries on the nose; intense acidity; medium tannins; tastes like sour cherries, raspberries, dried herbs, a hint of white pepper, and clay with a long finish. Probably needs to decant for a bit. More black fruit aromas after a decant. — 5 months ago
