So different than the Les Charmots. Nose is more ethereal and layered. Cherry and cherry flower but it is so lacey and nuanced. Gorgeous. Incredible florals. Pastille. Sweet raspberry. Just stunning. So delicate. Some BBQ and smoke as well. Palate has a painfully sweet intensity and incredible concentration yet remains light on its feet. Gorgeous purity and wonderful ripe tannins. Wow the freshness in this wine is off the charts. This is more tannic than the Charmots. After some air the nose is crazy. Such detail. This estate reminds me of a more polished accessible Billard-Gonnet.

Needs 2 hours. Before then all luscious fruit.

At peak

Nose: gods blackberry perfume. Blackberries. Intoxicating. Elegant. A hint of sexy blackberries. sensual. Attacks the nostrils almost like a spice but not spicy.

Palate is clean blackberry juice. A hint of perfect cherry. The fruit here is insanely perfect. The rebourgeon style. Good intensity and palate thrust. A hint of blueberry.

I’m not getting much palate complexity at 2 hours or this would be higher.
