Previously available for $45.11
65% new 85% French Average of 70 years old vines, unspecified mixed blacks aged in 65% new oak, 85% of which is French Toasty French oak on the nose, light though allowing the dusty, gentle soft fruit and a very flora base note of, blue flowers to rise from the glass. The super fine tannins and great integration here immediately become obvious as this shows of it’s silky, smooth and polished texture in the mouth with just the faintest chewy quality to the young fruit. Really quite elegant with a faint rustic edge this develops awesome textural complexity as the tannins and fine acidity grows in the mouth,along with fairly palate staining intensity of fruit on the palate. The finish is long, soft yet juicy finish, rich with wild cherry fruit, astringent red fruit, a hint of pomegranate and a very faint chocolate notion the finale. This is really lovely. 92pts
