Tasting Note:

The second vintage of this great newcomer is the product of 4 ha, including a small parcel of merlot purchased last year, all harvest in one afternoon on September 17th at a yield of 37hl/ha. The wine shows considerable structure, due no doubt in part to the orientation of the rows, which run east-west in this vineyard, ensuring maximum ripeness in 2006. Deep, dark ruby/garnet hue; a pure and alluring nose of blueberry, fruits of the forest and crunchy blackcurrant, damson and quince, allied with a fresh, creamy texture on the palate. Deep and complex, poised and harmonious, with hints of roasted nuts and black truffle, long and rich with persistent blackcurrant fruit. Tannins are ripe, firm and clean, yet silky and balanced. An outstanding, heady finish that combines richness and mineral complexity.
