I thought this was sublime and a major overachiever considering its humble Côtes de Francs appellation. A really pure expression of dark and red fruits (plums and currants respectively) with baking spices, stone and graphite. Maybe a touch of horse blanket?? Really nice structure. Need more of this in my life. Great QPR.

Good aroma, oak. Tobacco, black currant, blueberry etc. complexity. Even in good vintage, it can be drinkable. Gentle. Merlot rich. 2015 @, - pane e vino, 210216
Tried same vintage again. Animal flavor, leather, tobacco etc. particular flavor would attract wine lovers. It would match with Chinese cuisine with deep taste. 210425

Amazing wine. The nose is incredible, heavily fruit forward, but also very floral. 10/10 will buy again.

An elegant and enjoyable Bordeaux you can drink with minimal age. Biodynamic.

Am stunned by this cotes de bordeaux wine. Biodynamic. Imported by Neal Rosenthal. Bought with my friend John Truax at Flatiron wines. Very polished and sophisticated wine and a keeper at this price point. Would put many Saint Emilion Grand Cru to shame. Enthusiastically recommended. Drink or hold if you can :)
