So pure, intense cherry and minerals. Didn’t have the depth or complexity of the Metras, but wonderful on its own terms. Great acid and verve. Very fresh and fun, loved it with a slight chill.

Sipping Fine Wine

Sourced from the Saint Joseph and Grand Crus subzones of the appellation, which give fine, stony wines. A high-lying sandy parcel gives more complexity, structure, and acidity to the wine. Medium Ruby with red fruit and floral aromas. On the palate flavors of red plum, cherry, banana and earthy mint. Vivid acidity, medium fine tannins, dry with a medium+ finish. Very good and some bottle age will benefit. Tasting Sample.

Cranberry, red current, very floral - violets, lilac. Funky earth at first which turned to bergamot tea notes with some air. A gamay w some character!

Mag. Lighter and more aromatic in this vintage, sour and tart red fruit is absolutely singing right now, floral and earth tones. Will continue to open these and let the ‘14s rest

Hitting the decanter in a moment...

Nose is cherry juice, granite, voilets and smokey white pepper.
Palate is a little light, cherry/cranberry, but I expect it'll gain concentration throughout the evening.
