Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Brilliant ruby. Black raspberry, lavender and white pepper on the expressive nose. Juicy and open-knit, offering lively red fruit flavors and a jolt of bracing acidity. Closes silky and sweet, with no obvious tannins and very good fruity persistence. This is already delicious.

    (2006 Vintage) Inky ruby. Powerful dark berry aromas, with gentle garrigue and anise building with air. Fresh, racy and focused, offering sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors and suave, harmonious tannins. Turns spicier on the finish, with echoing red berry flavors. This cuvee is always destined for the European market. If you find it in the U.S.-and you are likely to since there are over 4,000 cases-it's here via the gray market.
