Even better in the bottle than it was from the barrel, the wine opens with chocolate, black raspberries, flowers, spice, and plums. Medium-bodied, soft, lush, and polished with freshness, fruit, silky tannins, and a gorgeous finish. Enjoy this beauty while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. Drink from 2023-2035.

With a nose that opens with roses, earth, and red fruits, the wine is juicy, crisp and fresh with a slight, savory edge to the red currant finish. The wine ends with a hint of cocoa in the background which I like. You can drink this on release while waiting for the Grand Vin to develop. Drink from 2022-2033.
