(casks) pretty full yellow robe. There is an instant hit of oak and its toast on the nose; this is weighty, with the oak masking its fruit – perhaps pear - for now. The attack is rich, with a supple quality and an agreeable feel. This is still making its way, and needs another six months to sharpen up and lessen its oaking. Table wine – sauced dishes. 14°. 1,200 b. €8.50. Gren bl, Clair, Rouss, Vio. 2019-20  May 2016
