Noted 91 (sample on barrel) by Wine Enthusiast. "Finely perfumed, this wine is open and full of generous black fruits. The ripeness and rounded juicy character mean that this wine is going to develop well over the medium-term. Drink from 2022." RV (4/1/2018)

Crystalline garnet color.
Amazing nose. Wild and airy, lively. Wild berries (sloe), very aromatic: lemongrass, tarragon, green anise. Smells
of soot and ashes (cold smoke), carbon.
In the mouth, supple, round, light, fresh with a nice grain of tannin. On aeration, notes of fruit in brandy, spices, incense and soot.
Harmonises with: to drink on country food, prepared by the fire. Duck rillettes, stuffed peppers, Basque chicken, moussaka, snails à la bordelaise, carrot beef, Pont-l'Evêque, Avesnes dumpling...
