“A delicate and fine tannined wine with medium to light body. Cherries and berries. Hints of cedar. Linear and bright. Light and cool year and wet all the year through. 1,113 bottles made. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour. Intense nose of red plums, wet leaves, garrigue, cedar and smoke – alongside a touch of violet. The palate is mellow yet persistent, with red fruits on the front before progressing to a savoury, earthy and mushroom-inflected mid-palate. Pleasantly long on the finish, with fine-grained, powdery tannins. Only 1,113 bottles were produced from the 2017 vintage.
