Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed red and dark berry liqueur aromas are complemented by suave allspice and incense nuances. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors that deepen and become spicier on the back half. Finishes impressively long and spicy, delivering a whiplash of juicy dark fruit and silky tannins that come in late. (JR)
Semi-carbonic, part destemmed, aged in cement tanks for 10 months. 55-year-old vines on granite. Mid crimson. Sweet red fruit. Nicely dusty, rocky aroma. A real sense of place here. Chewy and savoury on the palate, much darker in character than the Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages tasted so far. Firm and quite closed on the palate. Maybe needs a bit more time though many of the 2015s are already approachable so I would be cautious about keeping it for too long. (JH)
From the oldest vines on the estate, this is a rich and full-bodied wine. It has plenty of the bright, full concentration that comes from old vines. At the same time it has attractive layers of ripe plum and blackberry fruits. Let this cru wine age a little and drink from 2018. (RV)
