(2008 Vintage) Good medium red. Currant, cherry, raspberry, flowers and mint on the rather delicate nose. The creamiest and broadest yet of these negociant offerings, displaying raspberry and spice flavors framed by a firm spine of acidity. Made from young vines in an early-ripening vineyard. Nicely horizontal and elegant on the sweet finish.
International Wine Cellar(2006 Vintage) Good medium red. Smoky raspberry and strawberry aromas. Silky, suave and seamless but less obviously sweet than the village offering, with medicinal and coffee elements. Rich but a bit chunky today, with slightly medicinal flavors of chocolate, earth and brown spices.
