An exuberantly fresh nose features the essence of red cherry and pomegranate aromas that are liberally laced with subtle spice nuances. There is once again good detail and minerality to the highly energetic and saline-inflected middle weight flavors that terminate in a mildly austere, firm and balanced finale. This is presently tightly coiled but it should unwind after only a few years of bottle age.
Classic red fruit nose that shows finesse. Lean and delicate on the palate, precise with a charming airiness. It doesn't lack concentration and grip but is certainly no heavyweight. Drinking Window 2018 - 2025.(SB)
(this wine from very poor soil is vinified for finesse, according to winemaker Philippe Brun): Moderately saturated medium red. Higher-pitched on the nose than the Marsannay samples, offering scents of cranberry and pomegranate. Juicy and on the lean side, offering a restrained sweetness to the flavors of strawberry, cranberry, spices and earth. Less thick than the Marsannay cuvées but with nicely integrated acidity and good energy.
