Opened up beautifully over dinner, chocolate dipped black cherry, crunchy Asian spice box, great acid! Lafon reds are under rated.

Utterly lovely. Minerality and crunchy delicate fruit. Perfect lunch wine on a frigid day.

Opening nicely. Blue fruits (including blueberries) on the nose and palate. Smooth and balanced.

Not shy on oak, but perfumed and good earthy baseline to the darker fruit.
