2012. Somehow simultaneously massive, elegant, and earthy. A sip unwinds on the palate for days.

Excelle full bodied, yet smooth finish wine. Not too heavy on the berry and with the right amount of oak. Much more expensive in the French restaurant, so I highly recommend an online purchase. This is one that paired well with the foie gras, cheese board, chicken dish AND filet mignon.

My favorite vintner. Off the charts in funk. A must taste.
