Winemaker's Notes

Very darkly coloured, we are back to a most typical Style of Côte-Rôtie both on the nose and in the mouth. Violet and liquorice are dominant. The aftertaste impresses by an intense minéralité - mine de crayon.

Terroir : Landonne, Moulin, Chavaroche, Vaillère from vines over 50 years old.

"Ruby-red. Highly aromatic nose combines bright raspberry and redcurrant scents, a strong violet note and subtle mineral tones. Fresh, silky and sweet, with brisk red fruit flavors carrying impressively through a long, juicy, gently tannic finish. This is delicious right now."
-International Wine Cellar
