Wine tasting notes

Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of peony, preserved red berries (strawberry) and liquorice drop on a delicate vanilla note. Concentrated, round and complex. Beautiful aromatic combination on the fruit. Well-integrated oak note and well-shaped tannins. Good persistence.

JancisRobinson.com (2012)16.5 pts

Tasted Jan 2014 - A little more open and lemony than the Hauts-Marconnets plus a touch of cedar. Flavour and texture of pears on the palate with a fine and slight grainy impression, again like pears. Oak very subtle. Gently savoury, deep and long and still fresh. (JH)

June 2014 - This delivers a good dose of oak, with lemon and citrus blossom notes aligned with a lean frame. Intense and long, presenting a fine, smoky finish. Drink now through 2018
