A markedly earthy nose of mostly red berries and soft oak is cut with plenty of sauvage character. There is a touch of leather to the bigger, richer and slightly more concentrated flavors that are at once caressing but serious while offering a bit more depth and persistence. This will likely be approachable young but also reward up to a decade of cellaring.
This has attractive red florals and sappy red plums, as well as cherries. The palate has good depth, chew and succulence with ripe red-cherry flavors holding fresh. From two lieu dits: Plantes Aux Barons and Charbonnieres. Vine age is 60-plus years
