Tasting Note:

The power and tannins are always more evident in this cuvée but they are suave nonetheless. This will take longer to reveal itself than the La Landonne, it is so layered and profound. Initially linear and powerful, the flavours gradually expand and flourish the longer the wine stays on the palate and in the glass; brimful of violet, red cherry, stone, undergrowth, herb, bramble and spice. This is a vin de garde that will reward great patience. Fermented with 100% whole bunches and aged in 20% new oak demi-muid barrels.
