Tasting Note:

A wonderful mix of velvety, dark, ripe brambly fruit flavours and brighter red cherry and cherry stone notes. Full and with a smooth, caressing texture that provides solid foundations for the fruit. Finishing on peppery, sapid notes giving this lift. A blend largely from the schist, south-east facing vineyards of the Verenay commune including the lower part of Viaillere, Champon and Le Plan. As ever a proportion of whole bunches have been used in fermentation, a little larger than normal given the ripeness of the crop - 50%. Ageing is in oak barriques for at least 15 months with less than 15% new wood.
