Tasting notes: Dark, dry and smoky nose of black fruit, spiced blueberry, black pepper and dusty minerality. Fine but tough (now) with meaty tannins. Finished on wet earth, with dry tannins moving to coffee and chocolate. Acidity and perfume keeps it going but it needs some time (01.20)

Winemaking Details: From the oldest plot (Maison Blanches) with 30 year old vines, now moving towards sustainable farming certification (agriculture raisonée). Fermentation took place over 3 weeks with malolactic fermentation in barrique.
