The well-layered m?lange of red currant, blue berry and wet stone nuances marries seamlessly into slightly earthy, precise and energetic flavors that possess a firm but not hard tannic spine, all wrapped in a delicious and saline-infused finish. This is also quite understated yet stylish and I very much like the purity of expression.

Bright medium red. Crushed cassis and black cherry on the nose, lifted by a mineral element. Dense, chewy and concentrated; shows a chocolatey quality but also more mineral verve than the Chaignots. Plenty of medicinal reserve here. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry. A good showing.
