2007

plum red robe, legs down glass, rich aspect. There is Grenache red fruit forward on the bouquet, comes with pepper, a toffee roundness – it is at an agreeable stage now, with some local feel to it. The palate is rather rich, starts easily, acquires a minty, nutty note from the oak. The texture is supple, with juice in it. Cooked fruits appear on the finish. The oak is largely absorbed, but marks the palate nonetheless. 13.5°. 2015. Nov 2009

2006

full red; banana, vanilla, sweet and unusual aroma, with a nutty, grilled side. The palate starts softly, has fleshy matter, an ample and rounded texture all through. It ends on soaked cherries with tannins present. This is easy to drink, although the fruit is a bit stretched, so that the finish is hazy, and after 15 minutes this impression grows. Overdone. 13.5°. To 2012. June 2008
