In 2012 they blended their two single vineyard sites, La Chave and Luc into this one wine. It’s a freak show. Huge olive, huge blackberry and huge granite. An intense earthy minerality. So so complex. Almost like a tapenade. Amazing aromas. So juicy and with incredible energy. Wow what soft but such fine tannins. This is incredible. Amazing texture and balance with just ridiculous length and freshness. Stunning purity.

This bottle is like old Bordeaux. Nose has this lovely earth. Some cranberries peek out. Palate is cherry and cranberries. Very elegant. Still grippy tanins. Quite lovely and an interesting wine to drink.

Based on other notes this cork may have been very permissive oxygen wise.

Very elegant. Not at all rustic.

This needs some air for sure.
