Limpid violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry and cherry preserves, incense, exotic spices and smoky minerals. Sweet, seamless and energetic on the palate, showing impressive depth as well as sharp delineation to its intense red and dark berry, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors. Finishes smooth, sappy and extremely long, with repeating florality and deftly interwoven tannins that add framework and gentle closing grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

It’s Rhone night! Great balance between power and finesse. Rich dark fruit complemented by herbs and peppery nuances. More herbal notes than the Souteyrades. Great juice, ageworthy. 2017 vintage on March 21, 2020
