Continuing on the French expedition; this is divine! First sip was luxurious, silky and deep.

It's all over the place with classic black olive and kielbasa yet a real extracted grapey flavor and little acidity. Full of earth and tannin as it wakes up. Not for now but unsure about the future as well.

Alcohol a bit too prominent and the nose left something to be desired. Otherwise pretty enjoyable.

Superb spicy red fruit notes and the unmistaken alcohol of a CDP. Very good overall.
