Some spice and kirsch notes on bouquet. More of the same on the palate, with well integrated and fine tannins. Acidity a bit high and a touch of alcohol mars the balance slightly. Last of these and I have enjoyed all of them. Great value.
This is not a blockbuster CdP but a rather Burgundian in style wine. Color is medium garnet, quite transparent, nose is very fresh, expressive and complex. Initially it offers plummy fruit together with aromas of violets, fresh figs and garrigue. As it spents time in the glass it becomes more leathery. Palate is medium bodied, with firm tannins, medium acidity and slightly noticeable alcohol. Fruit is darker here but abundant and fresh. Nice finish. Could keep but this one is for the medium term, not long aging. Fairly priced at 19euros.
Popped and poured. Expansive bouquet of dark compote and a tinge of alcohol. Sweet, round entry. Enveloping warmth on the midpalate with cherries and sous bois to the fore and a medium length final. This is very enjoyable stuff - accessible, moderately complex and quite well balanced. Alcohol is perceptible and throws out the balance a little but this is great value.
I think this has at least another 5 years ahead of it.
