Why you'll love it?
Whole bunch inclusions and open fermentations in traditional concrete vats, 18mths in new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered, just perfect.
An elegant, pure and attractively ripe nose speaks of blackberry liqueur and dried floral notes with a background hint of the sauvage. There is a terrific inner mouth perfume to the notably spicy and mineral-driven flavors that possess an explosion of sap that renders the firm tannins almost invisible on the austere, balanced and equally explosive finish that is clearly constructed for the long haul. This offers excellent grip on the palate saturating finale and I very much like the underlying sense of tension.
