Interesting Southern France wine. Aromas of pronounced berry and floral scents. On the palate raspberry and plum flavors, currant like. Aged in oak for about 20 months. Well balanced, still very tight, long finish but needs time to develop. Tasting Sample. — 10 days ago
I really enjoyed this!
PnP. Dark cherry color. Nose had spice, earth, and gravel. Reminded me of another wine I’ve had, maybe Domaine Tempier Bandol.
Wine was a mix between Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Napa Cab. Nice structure and complexity. Deep cherry fruit, allspice, and dirt. Finish was medium.
Great last minute find!! — 2 months ago
Strawberry on the nose, but nice minerality on the palate — 15 days ago
Needs time to open. Although I’d stick with D. Tempier, this is pretty darn good. — 2 months ago
Tasted in the cellar at Tempier.
Nose just keeps evolving. Dried cherries, raisins, dried rose pedal, tobacco, iron, liver paté, asphalt, dried green herbs. Fantastically complex.
Palate delivers much of the same. Great concentration of dark fruit with strong, but ripe tannins that indicate that this wine has quite a lot of time left. Notes of thyme, oregano, and black tea seem to linger forever.
Killer stuff. My only regret is that I don't have a bottle for myself. — 3 months ago
What a GREAT difference from@2017 vintage, in a much better way! The nose is a little grasses, and a slight petroleum funk, the palate is balanced and crisp, wonderful@wine to ienjoy on a hot summer evening in Indiana!!! — 12 days ago
Enough complexity, enough acidities, enough body, great harmony, 99,99% pure and absolutely no hint of superficiality. Cleaner than Pradeaux or Gaussen and earthier than Pibarnon and Tempier. Tastes exactly right. — 2 months ago
