The whole package - fresh, vivid, fleshy, intense, layered, long. Hums with energy. Plenty of structure to boot, this will evolve well. Flat out delicious.

Gorgeous. Tiny strawberries, crunchy leaves, cedar, iron, some animal notes. Sweet spot in mid-transition from primary to secondary. Once again the strategy of blue chip producers in “lesser” vintages pays off

Clean, pronounced intense, concetrated aromas, fresh yet ripe red fruit, red cherries, strawberries, strawberry licorice, volatile perfumed lift, flowers, lavender, fresh herbs, balsamic Wood and bitter orange and rocks
Dry with medium tannnis wirh a soft texture. high acidity and a slight warming but integrated alcohol. Pronounced flavour intensity, with red cherries, lavender, fresh herbs. Caressing palate but with A fresh acidity that dictates the palate and provides structure and energy cross the mid palate through a medium + lenght balanced finish.
Quaffable yet with seriously structured, eminently concentration

In the zone. Nose of bright and sour cherry, spice, cherry syrup. Ethereal and rich. Mesmerizing. Elite as usual. Really showing well at almost 8. Palate is so juicy and clean. Bursting with ripe cherries and powdery tannins. Sneaky persistence. Fruit really is pure. Amazing energy. Always masterful.

Starting to lose freshness and the round sweet cherry fruit. I wouldn’t hold the 2014 vintage much longer. This was from a 1.5ml bottle. Drinkable.

Very carbonic nose. Red cherries, cranberry, mulberry bog, spices, some earth and mineral. Delicate and nuanced. Expansive and deep. Great nose. Classic Foillard CDP. Palate is focused like a laser. Juicy, complex, fresh and structured. As far as carbonic bojo goes this is hard to beat. A baby now but so balanced, complete, complex and classic. Terrific.

Telltale (but under control) barnyard funk livens the tangy red fruit and crushed granite on the nose. Cleaner in the mouth, with great intensity but very lively acid balance. Lip-smackingly good.

Beautiful delicately balanced wine with a deep layered bouquet that unfolds over hours. Raspberry jam, violet candy, morello cherries, wet moss and stones, herbal with some brine and dill. Supple and textured palate, balanced acidity and gentle tannins.
