My new addiction - Took awhile for it to open up. Could lay down longer sure. Very velvety.

Three days open, and just starting to show its stuff. Polished, refined, precise and underpinned with subtle Grenache notes. The exact opposite of Anonyme.

Gorgeous bouquet! Makes me want to dive into the bottle.
Delicious fruit, ripe tannins and excellent lenth. 2 hour decant needed at least!

Fresh, bold and new...this was leaving the things I thought I loved about CdP, but made me consider a different style of CdP. fruit considerate, acidity present, body controlled CdP is not the norm, but it is most enjoyable!!
