A deep garnet wine of extremely elegant aromatic intensity characterized by fragrant red berries and an airy minerality. The palate is firmly structured yet silky with excellent acidic balance, ending on a long, ripe finish underscored by woodsy, earth and mineral notes. The wine approaches maturity in most vintages after a decade or so.
"An inky Beaujolais, exhibiting firm tannins
and hints of pencil shavings, as well as crème
de cassis, plum and vanilla notes. There's a
good core of fruit, but this needs some time
to integrate." 90 Points
