dark red. The nose involves charcoal, tar from oak, grilling, with a firm implant of concentrated black cherry. It is pretty deep. The palate is criss-crossed by streamlined black stone fruits, has close-knit tannins present, leaves an impression of darkness and also subdued power in the glass. It finishes completely. Good, energetic wine. Beef, grills are suited. 14°. 80% Gren, 20% Syr. 15,000 b. €4. To 2021 June 2016

shiny dark red. Nice grain in a slightly reductive bouquet, offers blackberry fruit with lift, an “up” note; black cherry, licorice, hints of black pepper are present. The palate is very drinkable, w.o.w. wine in a nutshell. Its debut is attractively round and active. There are violet, garrigue touches, pine, menthol and black pepper. It runs with fine grain tannins that keep the palate fresh. Very genuine, a max drinkability here. 14.5°. €7.00. To 2016  May 2013
