A gorgeous showing tonight for the '12 de Montille Taillepieds, a wine that is only just starting to enter it's drinking window. Here I found a bouquet of crushed cherry mixed with savory minerality, wild herbs and hints of undergrowth. On the palate, savory rich textures gave way to dark red berry fruit with hints of stem induced exotic herbs. The finish was long with saturating dark wild berries, young tannin and inner floral tones. Its wonderfully expressive tonight.

Dark and rich, fruits turn to flowers through the finish. Captivating.
