Love this wine. Almost a Barolo at a fraction of the price.

Second bottle recently. Colour is quite evolved, quite bricked throughout. I’ve spent some time with this over several sittings. Tends towards rose petal on the nose, with a more stewed fruit profile (rhubarb?, plum?) on the palate. It is soft with no discernible tannins. Balanced structure and good length.

Nez sur la réglisse fruit noire l olive noire terrien et rustique
Bouche dense un peu déliée avec un fruit diminuant avec le temps et un alcool prenant le dessus
Un vin à boire
