Tasting Note:

Jean-Charles' motto this year comes from the Monty Python - "always look on the bright side of life"...for despite 2022 being a year "of torment, marked by extreme climatic phenomena… our vines were resilient, giving us an exceptional vintage and a life lesson". A blend of 51% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this is a very serious, Ormes de Pez exhibiting many of the characteristics we saw in Lynch Bages. Dark fruit aromas of cassis, pencil shavings and gravel mix with floral notes, leading to an intense core of vibrant creme de mûre, coated in long noble, mineral infused tannins. This is an exceptional and rather serious Ormes de Pez, which will benefit from a decade in bottle. Alas 40% of the crop was lost to hail.
