My first Lafarge. Elegance & balance are the key words. Very fine, medium body. More on the red fruit side mixed with herbs and nice acidity structure. High drinkability, very clean & focused. Tons of potential left for another decade of aging. Lovely.

Just starting to become approachable from this year. chalk, flint, clay, dandelion on nose......very thin on mid palate. finishes with dried cranberries with a hint of black cherry.

Little bit of TCA that came out the second day. Nice but underwhelming.
