Tangy ripe fruit. Quite big. Sour cherry and dark blackcurrant. Good stuff.

Vivacious, young and punchy on the nose. Fresh dark fruit with tangy herbal notes on top of one soured and lean, structured fruit. This is young but has great promise and never gets blowsy or over the top. Fantastic stuff

It’s young, but it’s never a wrong time to drink Allemand. Powerful, expressive and focused, blackberry, smoke, minerals and a hint of black olive. The finish is long, lingering and assertive.

Beautiful bouquet, excellent structure, sweet red currants, red flowers, hint of incense, wild herbs, hints of smoked bacon, terrific integration of fruit and earth and excellent length. Drinking beautifully.

Tasted blind out of a decanter, this was not budging initially and felt lean, maybe stilted, and angular next to a plush 2015 Voge St. Jo. After an hour or two, the wine started to expand, and impress. Of course, after revealing, we were all present to the majesty of Thierry’s touch. This was not as brooding and dense as I remember it, rather, it felt like the wine was reluctant to strut its stuff until we required it to. Forget about the 2010’s for awhile.

Leaner profile than some vintages earlier in decade. Arguably more classic.

A haunting nose of smoke, earth and red fruit. Seamless in the mouth with multiple layers of complex flavors of dark & red fruit and olives. With air less minerally but greater fruit and olive flavors.
