($80) Bright ruby. Spicy aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and candied rose. Dense and wonderfully fresh, with intense red and dark fruit flavors and notes of tarragon, black pepper and floral candy. Powerful but light in weight (at about 13% alcohol) and displaying excellent balance and precision. According to Barruol, 80% of the fruit was from the Cote Brune, and the average vine yield was just 18 hectoliters per hectare. "My model is Jamet," he commented.Author: Josh Raynolds
