    Iron, garrigue, sweet cherry, soy & raspberry on nose. On palate, black cherry, black raspberry, glycerin. Long finish, medium body & nice tannic grip. Not a re-buy for me but a very well made wine. I prefer Pegau to this producer.

    June 3, 2016 - Tasted during our monthly "diner francophone", tonight's topic: CdP. Nose of dark fruit, dark cherry, lots of licorice and black fruit. Well structured and good freshness. A very good wine but not among the best in tonight shoot out.

    June 1, 2016 - Amazing nose of tapenade, meat, camphor, smoke, melted licorice, and red fruit. Bright cherry fruit on the attack. Lively mouthfeel with good minerality. There is an aspirin-like bitter note that I dislike, but that is just a quibble. Tannins are balanced and perhaps a tad on the weak side.

    Certainly, this wine is ready to drink now. Really great. A privilege to drink.

    May 29, 2016 - Popped and poured. Dark and red fruit, with hints of leather, pepper and roasted meat . Lush body, with rather resolved tannins. Long finish, great wine from an average year.

    May 21, 2016 - Cor intensa, capa média alta. Em nariz intenso, complexo, frutas negras, algo de trufa, cogumelos. Em boca potente mas elegante, longo. Mais 10 anos em garrafa parece ser uma boa recomendação.
