healthy dark red robe; the bouquet is pretty elegant, softly lined with blackberry fruit, a note of dried herbs, has the sweet curl of the summer’s sun. The palate drinks with ease, is in the here and now, a fluid passing train of light plum-fruited content, the finish supple, the tannins squeezy, a little savoury. The length is correct. It will be a whizzer with sausages, barbecued foods. Drink this soon for best results. 14.5°. 2023-24 March 2021

dark red colour. This has a lively, immediate, racy bouquet that is full of black cherry fruit, is nice and plump, comes with licorice, attractive sweetness, a tiny bit of reduction. There is plenty of fruit as well on the palate – bingo it goes, is a juice fest, a supreme w.o.w. wine with some southern depth, quiet power, so is very apt for grills, barbecues, food over solo drinking. It’s a dashing red Côtes, with ripe tannins, fresh length. The aftertaste has a light powder texture. This has been well made to provide pleasurable, good, free drinking. 14°. To 2020 July 2017

medium red robe. The nose gives a mulled fruits air with a dusted, baked plains aspect that flattens it. The palate commences on some tasty black fruit, but also has a near baked side as it ends. I wonder if there is Brett here. Not sure. The fruit recedes on the finish, which is dry. 14°. 70,000 b. €6.30. Bottled Jan 2015. To 2018  Oct 2015
