Opens with a bit of reduction, Plums & more plums and a bit of cherry with a pinch of cinnamon & cloves and some damp, earthy undergrowth. On the palate this is surprisingly plush (for a Vernatsch) with soft plums and a bit of prune plus a herby, slightly bitter tang. Quite tannic yet juicy & nicely balanced.
A very nice one, in a riper, fuller style (again, for a Vernatsch). — 8 months ago
Closer to a Valpolicella Classico or Vernatsch than your typical Provence rosé.
Dark(er) in colour and in the nose with sweet strawberry & rhubarb, ripe watermelon and succulent blood-orange, on a bed of rocky, herby minerality. So sappy and succulent, with surprising weight and a touch of tannin but with such a flow - this is a delight.

A slightly more modern yet highly authentic interpretation of Vernatsch. Cool & fresh with ripe plums, with some plum jam, a bit of damp earth & undergrowth, some graphite.
Nicely drawn, this is featherlight yet focused & precise, with pure, juicy fruit, good acidity and present tannins - quite light yet with grip. The aging in (large wood) fills the mid palate nicely. This is why I love Vernatsch!

Lovely aromatics that evolve wit time, starting with with plum & cherry, they blueberry, bitter orange marmelade ending with coffee dregs. There’s a seductive exotic spice in the background, too. On the palate this show nice purity to the juicy fruit, with crisp cherry and red currant, a plush feeling to the light tannins and great balance. This is drinking beautifully right now but will hold easily for the next couple of years. A very nice wine. — 8 months ago
