A heady aroma, as robust as a Sangiovese, yet deeper with intense red berries. The instant olfactory memory evoked is one of the French countryside, an environment where food is straight from farm to table. The initial taste is fresh with a round mouth-feel, fruits contrasted by sharp tannins. It evolves into spice, tobacco, freshly chopped wood; all the while performing a try-partite symphony on the palate - well balanced between sharp, mellow, and deep earthy flavours impossibly cascading over the senses all at once. The finish is savoury and sweet, it begs for a taste of strong cheese, and leaves the mouth watering - dearly anticipatory of the next sip.

Truly an exquisite find.

Ripe dark fruit, dried floral, cocoa, leather, earthy. Great balance, nice lasting finish, fun wine.

Damn. Quite Bretty. Borderline too much. But, if you are tolerant. Do it. It's great.

Dark flavors, opening up to brighter dried fruits, grilled strawberry, espresso. 1995 vintage.

Yeah, so, but, really, I mean, whatever. If you own these wines but think cdp is too ripe for you, buzz me a message.

1998-- really delicious. Classic flavors. Dried herbs, smoky bacon fat. Plenty of fresh red fruits still offset by soft black pepper. Lots of life left but was my last bottle.
