Note

Arrives Fall 2022

From this estate’s oldest vineyard overlooking the Rhône river, this is truly wonderful wine that will put many more prestigious appellations to shame.
Deep, dark purple in color this wine is opaque, and in fact looks thick where it meets the glass. The aromas are of blackberry, leather, smoked meat and earth tones. In the mouth, it has near-perfect balance with thick, sweet fruit, but nice, lively acidity. Very difficult to resist now, though it will benefit from 5-10 years of cellaring. Only 25 cs imported to the US.
