sound red robe. Wet stones, mineral-inflected outer nose, with a tuck in of cool red berry fruit, has a loose quality. The palate gives a breezy line of red fruits mixed with herbes de Provence, garrigue pockets, has grainy moments and some local charge on the finish. This drinks freely, without adornment, has a naked, grain-filled quality. Good with grills, sausages. It may infuse some of its tannin over the next six months. The close is fresh. 14°. 30,000 b. 8.45 at the cellars. To 2019 Sept 2016
