“This is a slatey and earthy wine built by substantial tannins. Lengths of black currant and blackberry are peppered in cigar box and clove on the palate.” Virginie Boone

“Open and accessible, shows a gush of warmed cassis and plum compote flavors, laced with black licorice, supported by a graphite edge at the very end. Drink now through 2027.” James Molesworth
