dark red; the nose is smoky, with a tinkle of clarity and a note of violet, dark red fruits present. The palate is threaded with a floral influence, holds precise, attractive fruit, drinks well, ends with neat tannins, has been well made. It’s fine, good in its grade. “It shows gourmandise”, Lionel Faury. 12.5°. Bottled last week. 2022-23 Dec 2018


pale red robe; gamey, rather fungal air, mild blackberry along with red fruits. The palate has a soft red fruit debut, comes with an intrinsic schist tang and cut that works well. It ends clearly and crisply. Pretty, scented red fruits in this – a charming wine of character. 2013-14 Nov 2009
