A discreet application of wood allows the airy, pure and elegant aromas of violet, plum and exotic tea to shine. There is a cool and restrained mouth feel to the punchy medium weight flavors that offer good richness yet also pretty good delineation on the soil and mineral-inflected finish that is dusty, balanced and solidly persistent. It's rare that even a very good Chatelots can match an average Fuées but that is the case here.

Nose is dark fruit, no floral notes. Color is dense violet. Very smooth mouthfeel and could be compared to a well aged burg. But overall the only thing lacking length on palette with vibrant notes. Let it open for at least an hr. Good experience overall, drink anytime.
