(vat) sturdy dark red robe. Licorice and black cherry sweep across the nose,a Syrah topping above a Grenache core, the fruit ripe, slightly sweet, southern. It’s very juvenile, primary, will vary over time. It’s bright and secure in depth. The palate offers tasty, enjoyable black fruits with precise, easy fit tannins and their light powder, grain. Stylish Côtes du Rhône here, testament to the vintage and good winemaking. The fruit has a pinpoint accuracy, purity. This will please, will serenade its drinkers. It keeps going well, with both good ripeness and coolness, is well balanced. I would drink it young. 13.5°. From 2018. 2022-23 Aug 2017
