Quite firm and tannic and on palate. A bit lean – restrained. Will it develop?
Deep red. Warm, relaxed and resonant, though unfocussed. Soft, gentle palate; a very laid-back Faugeres. Lots of schisty mineral action too, though. A little more precision would pay dividends.
Rather intriguing – sharp blackberry fruit flavoured with mocha oak. Spicy. Good but rather international in ambition.
