Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
13 %

Notes

Eric Prisette’s 4.5 hectares continue to provide great value, modern wines with a definite character. The 2005 is deep and powerful, with an elegant nose of dark fruits of the forest; it possesses a solid core with fine mineral characters, great elegance and a finish of prodigious length.

Notes
A high scorer on release, at a point where this was still owned by former footballer Éric Prissette, before it was sold in 2009 to today's owners Alexandra and Nicolas Robin. One of the original band of garagiste wines, this is still showing the oak dominance that was there during En Primeur. It is confident, with a ton of impact but not a lot of nuance, majoring instead on liqourice, bitter black chocolate, spice, damson jam and black cherry fruit. Enjoyable, no need to wait any further to drink, but I definitely suggest a good few hours in a carafe.
