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.

Tawny to the edge, mostly transparent. Nice soft regal nose. Notes of dark fruit, herbs de Provence, plum and gravely soil. Nicely integrated fruit and structure. Pretty good juice.

Bursts of red fruits but evolving in the glass with secondary flavors, gentle tannins and persistence and a great freshness.

Ce vin nécessite de la patience mais que c’est fin! dans un style à l’opposé de Raynaud et pourtant magnifique. J’adore!!!
