has a good, shiny dark red robe. There is a good bundle of garrigue herbs, dust with black cherry, lucid fruit in a curvy bouquet. The attack is confident, delivers right away, black berry fruits with beau tannins that are nice and snug until a late increase in depth - tar and coffee there. The presence of the young vine fruit, under 10 to 15 years, shows on the finish, which is just a bit loose. There’s licorice on the aftertaste. It drinks OK now, is w.o.w. wine. 14.5°. 20,000 b. 2021-22 Oct 2017

2015 ()

bright, lustrous dark red robe. The nose shows reduction, leads on black fruit that has a little chocolate attached, an additional darkness. The palate is savoury, quite richly endowed with rolling black fruit, fleshy content. A line of grainy tannin is entered into its flanks. The finish involves a little tar and concentrated cassis fruit. 14°. 20,000 b. 80% Gren, 20% Syr. 2021-22 June 2016
