dark, quite black cherry robe; live, open nose, offers sunny, poised appeal, clear black fruit. Well-cut start to the palate, the black fruit is vigorous and sustained. Clean Cornas, but not soulless, either. Snappy late tannins, along with not excessive oak. From late 2009. This is pre-bottling, note. If all well after bottling, will be harmonious. 2016-18 Feb 2008 Previously Dec 2007 * dark, bright black plum colour; the nose is a bit sweaty – it shows gamey black fruit, black jam, is musky. Low profile black berry fruit leads the palate, which lacks cut. This is a mulled, rather sweet, late cropping wine. It doesn`t grip as it should, and I find it flattering rather than convincing. So-so length. From 2009. To 2015. Dec 2007
