First bottle of a case purchase. An aromatic nose of blackberry and black raspberry licorice, fig, forest floor, pepper and Indian spice notes that follow through on the sweet, sappy full bodied palate which linger effortlessly on the finish. A beautiful wine.
The nose is rich and plush with dark cherry, kirsch, lavender, and dusty spices. The palate is incredibly precise and balanced with a kernel of sweetness delicately wrapped in spices and herbs. This is magnificent - and a huge bargain at the 35 euros of so I paid. Drinking beautifully now and there's certainly no need to wait for the tanins to soften, though I don't see why it wouldn't age nicely too. 93-94
Dense purple, almost black color. Dried cranberries, garrigue, herbs de Provence, licorice, pepper, crunchy dry tannins, and a fairly long finish. Textbook herby CDP, and delicious. Drinks young but well now, and should age nicely.
Decanted for two hours and drank over the next four. Great CNDP drinking well now. Corked smelled of cranberry juice. Fragrant nose and garnet color. A little spicy, but I like that. Well balanced and nicely suited the figs I had on hand. Much better than the Saint Prefert Beatus Ille. Well worth the price on this one.
