91pts Burghound: A ripe and overtly peppery mix of red and dark fruit, cut with plenty of earth character. This can also be found on the beautifully rich, seductive and opulent flavors that culminate in a lingering and slightly warm finish, where a hint of bitter cherry pit arises. This should drink well young, yet reward mid-term cellaring as well.

90pts Wine Enthusiast: Ripe cherry and red-berry flavors burst from the glass with this deliciously fruity wine. It has a soft texture and richness cut with acidity. This is a wine to savor from 2019.

From the Winery: The extraordinary variety of terroirs means we have to carry out ‘haute couture’ style work adopting a meticulous approach for each and every vineyard. To allow the terroir to express itself, each parcel receives ‘tailor-made’ care, where the yields are naturally reduced. This often involves replacing whole parcels: six hectares of old gobelet (free standing) vines were pull-up and replaced with young, wire-trained vines, enabling the bunches of grapes to ripen better.

The winemaking teams refuse to use easier methods which would rush the process, preferring to use unhurried methods which allow the characteristics of the terroir to come through. Methods such as cold maceration and long fermentation periods help to produce more subtle aromas, and ageing in used oak barrel helps integrate the tannins and delicately brings out the silky character of the wine.

This is all done with the aim of extracting the flavours and elegance of the Cru Fleurie to which we pay tribute each year.

TASTING NOTES 

Bright brilliant colour, reflecting garnet and violet nuances. Bouquet, fine and elegant with notes of cherry and blueberry. Palate, extremely expressive, with a freshness highlighting the balance between structure and aromatic richness.
