So floored by the grace and level of detail this has. The acid is keen and runs a taut line from front to back, I hate to say it (because it’s not entirely true) but this has a more modest vintage character than that of most 2015s. Must be producer because I find the Vernay reds refined and charming in the best sense. Ripe red berry fruits, crushed black cherry, insane amounts of crushed granite. This is backed by beautiful floral and licorice aromas, it pumps garrigue without a moment of the peppercorn and meaty goodness being far behind. The tannins have some ripeness to them. Oak is a little pronounced at first, but suits the wine well upon opening.

This playful little number showed off all her beauty underscored by a subtle viognier blended in. Balanced, layered, light with a taunt of cherries and spice.

Gorgeous nose. Slamming. So pure. Berries. So subtle and feminine. Like so layered and subtle and nuanced. Complex and so juicy with wonderful structure and purity. Fresh with terrific acids and wonderful purity. Elegant but and dense as this is 15.
