Deep fruit flavors and concentration on an elegant and balanced frame. Complete from first nose to the lasting finish.

In between blockbusters 2005 and 2007. This bottle was slightly oxydized and therefore not representative.

2007 vintage. Took an hour to two to open up and find its balance. Was acidic at the start both in nose and taste. Fleshed out and softened with time. Pepper on the front. Just a lovely Rayas. Shouldn’t drink too fast!

Best wine of a night replete with great Rhones. Elegant and rich and subtle.

2007. Ripe. Prominent dried fruits. Showing a bit too port-like...

Pale Gold. Medium+ intensity. Tropical: pineapple, honey, prune. M- acidity. M+ body. M+ finish. Developed with a lot of complexity.
