Dark fruit and a very firm structure. Should be great in a year or two. Only issue is that it lacked length. A very serious wine

Mon amour ❤️ More powerful than the Cote de Brouilly, deeper and certainly more structure. This falls perfectly in the category of "power without weight".

Fruit profile's similar to the Cote de Brouilly - a mix of red and black fruits, with a little more weight and richness. A step up in spiciness and savouriness. Clear licorice, pepper, rhubarb, and beetroot notes. Some floral elements thrown in the mix. There's a super energetic acidity and stoniness. Long, smoky finish. Could drink a lot of this now, but cellaring would benefit it heaps.

From 60 years-old vines. Warmer site than the Cote de Brouilly. Organic, vinification semi-carbonic in concrete tanks without sulfur. Corne Verte - a blend of yellow and pink granite, clay, and diorite found only in Odenas. Elevage for 11 months in used foudres and barrels. Annual production of 3,000 bottles.
