Bought at a French restaurant at a reasonable price. Decanted but still young. Fantasic nose. Intense, rich and pure fruit witt a piercing mineral and citrus core. Very long and great balance. Super wine.
There may be bottle variation but comparing to some of the other notes this bottle had plenty of clean fruit. Lots of strawberries in fact. Quite nice for a Hautes Cotes which tends to do better in warmer years in my opinion. Easy drinking and just fine now.
