One-dimensional nose with bright fruit (goji berry and cherry) and uncharacteristically noticeable alcohol. Dry leaves and light black tea emerge with time. Fresh dark cherry on the palate with coffee grounds, and secondary dried dark fruits. Bottle from domaine.
Ultra fresh Strawberry and Cranberry fruit, this wine was at peak for 10-15 minutes in the glass before fading. Those few minutes were great however, the excellent fruit was lying just below its medium plus acidity but the fine, woven tannins put this in a different class, showing good power, spice and persistence on the finish. Of course, it continued to be enjoyable as it faded, later showing some sweet, cherry in alcohol flavors. I hear DRC is doing better with this vineyard these days but this was a good introduction for me.
