Peppercorn, minerality. Tannic yet approachable. Great balance from a tough vintage.

Outstanding '13 from Brunier. Beautiful richness, depth and concentration for the vintage.

Red raspberry and a little over note of vanilla. A very savory wine with heavy tobacco, dried herbs and black tea flavors. The finish is elegant and refined

Beautiful ripe strawberries and vanilla on the nose that is somewhat pastry like. Black pepper and tilled soil fill it out.

Yummy ripe, red fruit: strawberry and cherry for days. Black pepper and black tea with garrigue flavors follow through. The acidity is bright for this style with firm but well integrated tannin.

Such pure, ripe fruit that is so tasty, but not over extracted. The spice components add intriguing complexity. Quite nice to drink on its own.

Soft tannins, mineral and earth, old world body that joyfully flows over your palette.
