  • This is a classic Saint Emilion blend, The wine is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, it is the first vintage from this winery.

    This wine is now slowly opening, it used to be closed as a drum, The nose starts to open with ripe fruit, loamy dirt, ethereal forest floor, and red fruit perfume – what a lovely experience of watching wine open. The mouth on this medium plus wine follows classic French style, no hammering fruit, no fruit forward issues here, but to be fair it also requires you to take notice of more subtle intonations and characteristics. Here the wine is not a wallflower. The mouth on this medium plus bodied wine is rich and ripe with blackberry, cassis, ripe black plum, lovely black cherry, and tart raspberry, all wrapped up in nice mouth coating tannin that does not give up. Clearly, the star of the show is the tannin and loamy dirt, but the fruit and oak add to the wine’s complexity, that helps round the mouth and adds depth to its meaning. The finish is a bit short but does lengthen with time, with classic French balance, great acid, mineral, graphite, chocolate, more dirt that mingles with tart red fruit, leather, and tobacco to make for a long lingering wine. It is a nice wine, but not overly complex
