Pure malbec aromas... red currant, red plum, some underlying earthy and herbaceous notes. A round body with soft acid and tannins but balancing tartness. Put a little chill on it!

Tannat (80%)/Cabernet Franc (20%) blend. Deep purple color. Dark black fruit aromas and flavors. Hints of smoke and oak. Just a bit of a green note but it incorporates beautifully. Nicely structured, as the Tannat was not over extracted. Tannins are present but not overly grippy. Alcohol is also reasonable at 13.5%. This wine has benefited from aging.

After decanting and letting rest for a while it is a great well balanced wine — 9 days ago
Deep almost black color, ruby, with slight orange shades. Advanced open nose, wood-smoked black fruits, graphite charcoal, tobacco, roasting. Mouth with dense but flexible tannic material. The breeding is perfectly melted and seems to be able to withstand another 5 or 10 years of aging without problems. A gourmet class wine at an affordable price.
Robe profonde presque noire, rubis, au légères nuances orangée. Nez ouvert évolué, fruits noirs bois-fumé, charbon graphite, tabac, torréfaction. Bouche à la matière tannique dense mais souple. L’élevage est parfaitement fondu et semble pouvoir supporter encore 5 ou 10 ans de garde sans problème. Un vin de classe gastronomique à prix abordable. — a month ago
My favorite brandy house, but I’ve never tried this expression.
Nose: tropical fruits - papaya? Banana? Nuts - almonds, peanuts, peanut brittle. Intense baking spices - allspice, cinnamon, clove, black pepper. Salted caramel, toffee. Light roast coffee. Bitter chocolate. Boozy vanilla extract. Yum.
Taste: marvelous. A little lighter bodied than the 25 year (from what I recall), but all the same bitter chocolate and salty caramel and old varnished wood - and tobacco. And hot spices. And charred, caramelized orange? Yowzah. Top tier. I’ll have to directly compare to my 25 year and 30 years…but this is remarkable. 97. — 3 days ago
Very dry… like English humour. But it finishes off with a nice earthy and nutty finish. If you like tannins and puckering your lips this is fantastic. — 17 days ago
