2017 ()

(vat) quite a dark red; the bouquet is sweet n’easy, gives a floral, raspberry flourish, is open now. The palate bears spiced plum fruited content, with a peppery, still rather raw note to the tannins. This carries garrigue influences, and has drive along the palate, Grenache plum fruit at its core. 15°. 80% Gren, 20% Mourv. From mid-2020. 2032-33 Mar 2019

2015 ()

(vat) quite a dark red. There is a cool, menthol-like top aroma on the nose, blueberry fruit present with licorice. The palate engages easily on the attack, gives a little spicing in its dark red berries. There are fine powder tannins to close it. From mid-2017, it isn’t far off OK. 14.5°. 100,000 b. €8.45. Cairanne cru wine, not Villages. 2021-22 May 2016

2013 ()

(vat) dark red colour; has an inky, pulpy aroma of soaked red cherries, strawberry -  a gentle, uncomplicated kick-off. The palate offers supple red fruit, with a squeezy texture throughout, and some fine, smooth tannins to close it. This provides harmonious drinking, a joli glass of wine. It is ready now.
