You do not judge the quality of a good Châteauneuf on its concentration, but on the quality of its tannins : here is a Cuvée which illustrates this claim ! Silky, smooth, comforting touch in the mouth. Huge intensity!
  • v92-93

Lurid purple. Spice-accented black raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of allspice, succulent flowers and smoky minerals. Appealingly sweet and seamless in texture, offering energetic red berry, cherry preserve and candied lavender flavors along with musky herb and licorice flourishes. Concentrated but energetic in style, showing superb closing thrust, rounded tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence.

Ripe and lush in feel, with waves of currant, plum and raspberry compote rolling through, flecked with bright anise, alluring incense and singed alder notes. Long finish. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2020 through 2035. 750 cases made.
