Dark chocolate and cherries hit all the right notes. There is a lot of lift to the fruit, yet the berries remain dark, peppery, and floral. The tannins are equally elegant, giving you a refined, fresh, and concentrated wine. The fruit comes from vines planted on the Cote Brune, in one of the highest levels of elevation, close to Les Grands Places. Here you find a lot of clay in the soil, which adds a lot of richness to the wine. On average, 60% of the grapes are destemmed. The wine is aged in neutral French oak for close to 24 months before bottling. Drink from 2026-2046.

Orange citrus peel, flowers, 5 spice, and dark red fruits pop in the nose. The wine on the palate is powerful, yet perfectly balanced. Elegant, long, mouthcoating and fresh, the dark red fruits, with their hints of olives and licorice leave a long, expansive expression on your palate, as the finish really lingers.

Wow! This is what great wine is all about. The nose is intense with its blend of white flowers, spice, licorice, smoke, wet earth, and perfectly ripe, red, and black fruits. Texturally, this is incredibly sensuous with a finish that doesn't quit. There is weight and density, as well as balance, harmony, length, purity, depth, and most importantly, style and character. And that is what separates the good from the great wines. If you find a bottle or two, grab it, as less than 100 cases were produced. This should age for 3-4 decades effortlessly.

Like walking into a flower shop located next to a barbecue stand, the smoke and flowers add a lot to the medium-bodied, sweet, ripe, silky, fresh, elegant, polished red fruits. The tannins feel soft and relaxed, making this relatively forward, so you can probably start drinking it within 5 years or so. Yet, even though it can be enjoyed early, it should age for at least 20 years or more.

Matching the power of the fruit with the tannins and waves of complexities produces a wine that is equally concentrated, fresh and dense. The lift and aromatics shine here. The finish, with its multi-layered wall of stone, spice and red fruits goes on and on. But this demands at least a decade in the cellar before it is ready for its prime time drinking window.
