The quality of the fruit is superb, and the wine is profound, round, with a deep color. Aromas and flavors of graphite, strawberry compote, licorice, and lilacs.
"This has lush, silky-textured layers of dark plum, anise and crushed blackberry fruit, woven with black tea and graphite notes through the finish. Belies the AOC with its length and depth. "
"Vivid purple. High-toned, intensely perfumed nose displays dark berries, licorice and smoked meat, with a sexy floral topnote. Juicy, broad and a bit wild, with sweet, deep, energetic flavors of floral-accented blackberry and cassis. Closes sappy and long, with lingering violet and black pepper notes."
