bright, quite full red robe. Licorice, soft black cherry aroma, with violet, lavender, flint stone – good guile in the bouquet. This has depth and finesse, and is up a gear from the Vieux Sage and Crillons reds. Measured, soft texture, and a fresh finish, the length good. w.o.w. wine. 15°. To 2016 March 2011
