This is rather delicious. Beautiful red fruit in the nose with dark plum and a hint of violet. Very pure and intense on the palate. Kirsch, some herbal notes intense berry fruits and real purity. Silky, and handles the alcohol well. One of the best of their recent vintages

Dark tawny and opaque. Herbal nose. Notes of herbs de Provence, wispy dark fruit, white pepper, some old wood and a little kirsch. Great balance in the mouth. I would call this at peak and doubt it improves with more age, but no need to be in hurry to drink these. Plenty of life ahead of it.

An assault of dried bacon fat 🥓 and kirsch liqueur. Give this time in the glass or long decant, gets better and better, and there’s a hint of prune there that I ❤️ but may turn some people off.

Ripe and plummy with a bit of cherry at the edges. Real deep Grenache. A bit too hot and overblown.

Needs a lot more time in a bottle. Took a couple of hours to open up. But yummy!

A mixture of game, black pepper, herbs and spices, black cherries on the nose. Very pronounced and fragrant nose. A rush of game/animal, followed by sweet dried cherries on the palate. Very juicy with great acidity. Long finish - nice viscosity.

Lots of animal and dried spices on the nose with iron, and that plummy Grenache thing. Lively and dynamic on the palate and not too hot. Nice balance and a decent finish. Savory and good with food.
