The most massive of the haut cuvées, if you can call a 12.5% wine "massive". Possibly the purest expression of Cab Franc I've tasted in 35+ years of buying wines. Deep, dark and brooding at first, then layer after layer of precisely focused flavors unfold. Bravo!

Just a bunch of ripeness. Plums,cherries. What an effort by Thierry Germain. Well done. Silky soft tannins. Beautiful.

Very approachable from the beginning although quite young. A very earthy wet smell and a beautiful magenta color.
