Medium red. Musky, rather exotic aromas of red fruits and faded rose. Sweet but a bit medicinal and withdrawn, showing more grip but less sex appeal than the Cazetiers. This is cooler on the back end, even a tad dry. This cuvee comprises two-thirds Mazoyeres and one-third Charmes. Interestingly, Rousseau considers Mazoyeres to be more feminine in style, but points out that three-quarters of the estate's vines in Mazoyeres are relatively young.

(Two thirds of this wine comes from Mazoyères.) This wine was the first in this line-up to be treated to second fill barrels. Great fruit and one does wonder what it would be like with a slightly tighter corset, however delicate the fruit. Rich and jewelly with great freshness too. Real tingle and thrill but relatively light. This positively dances on the palate it’s so bright-fruited. Lots of sweet, gentle fruit – certainly a charmer. Very pretty indeed without being a show-off. Long with the tingle factor.
