Bright medium red. Wild aromas of currant, game, leather, licorice and minerals. Densely packed and serious but less sweet than the Bressandes and Marconnets, showing flavors of redcurrant and game. Finishes with strong supporting oak tannins that come off a bit dusty today. This will need time in barrel to come alive.

In contrast to all of the preceding wines here the nose is distinctly floral in character while combining with notes of pungent earth, red currant and dark berry fruit aromas. There is a beautiful sense of tension and delineation to the linear and driving mineral-inflected finish. This is also markedly more firmly structured than any wine in the range with the exception of the Marconnets. Excellent quality and highly recommended, at least if you have the patience.
