Rustic and long but kind of tannic and inelegant.

Darker nose than regular BV. Black cherries, blackberries, wet concentrated packed soil, intense loamy minerality, spice and an uncanny depth. You can tell this wine is packed with old sap and intensity. Beautiful mashed dark flowers. Really detailed, delicate and vivid. This is a Huge step up over the VV, which is spectacular onto itself. Impressive palate. Really deep and structured with amazing finesse for something so big and structured. This one needs 2-3 hours of air while the regular can be popped and poured. Stunning length, sap and purity on this. Incredible concentration and power. The creaminess is in this wine as well as the regular cuvee. It's more pronounced on the finish. Very impressive, structured, old vine Beaujolais. it's "Clotaire Michal" the producer.

Robe pourpre
Nez introverti
Bouche ayant besoin de beaucoup d air après plusieurs jours oui jour bouche ample pleine sur des notes de mûre et de terre
Finale sur la réglisse et la mûre
Aucune défiance même après 4 jours d air

Lovely fruit with a touch of violet. Soft and round, finish is surprisingly saline/mineral. Initial vibrancy quickly faded however
