Lovely. Color: rouge. Clarity: cloudy. Open 7 days. Nose is bounteous with lots of rich fruits; including fig & black cherry. Front palate is dark and rich with dark fruits and the finish is long and heavy with anise and violets. Lots of acid - hold on to the rest.
This is drinking beautifully now, with a few secondary characteristics poking through the blueberry fruits, tobacco leaf, spices and delicate oak. The palette has some well balanced tannins with meat juices and textual acidity, with a bright, smoky finish.
I was surprised by the ripe fruit, which was nice, but I missed the provence herbs and earthiness that would have balanced the fruit and complemented the dinner. I think I waited too long before drinking this good value wine.
