    (50% vendange entier ; this spent six months in a new barrel before being racked into a one-year-old piece , both from Francois Freres): Good medium red. Aromas of currant, licorice, smoke and dried flowers. Suave and pliant in the mouth, with a lightly saline quality to the flavors of strawberry and dried flowers. Finishes with an intriguing peppery nuance and substantial dusty tannins. This wine would have been heavier without the stem component, noted Virgile Lignier, but it nonetheless does not have the finesse of texture of the Clos de la Roche. In fact, I am more aware of the stems here than I am in some of the wines fermented entirely with whole clusters, perhaps due in part to the lower average age of these vines, which were planted in 2003 and 1970.
