2019

(vat/large barrel) steady red robe; the bouquet carries a sweet aroma with rose petal scenting accompanying the plum fruit, is a graceful, curvy opening. The palate is expressive and tender, commences with a tasty, refined roll of spiced red stone fruit content, picks up tannins with a little powdered cut in them, can extend further over time. The aftertaste is fresh and precise. There is a good increase in depth after the mid-point, nothing exaggerated. It feels hand made, and its elegance is very appealing. It’s a calm, attractive Châteauneuf, hints at sandy soils and measured winemaking, possibly young vines. It will be beautiful with lamb and rosemary. 14.5°. 80% Gren, 20% Syrah. From 2023, decant it. 2042-44 April 2021
