  • The terroir on this wine is usually the source for wild fruits, but this is a different wine, a dry and quite tannic one. It has a dry core, chalky texture and a dry finish. Drink now.
  • This is a big, ripe-vintage, aromatic wine from the Bordeaux-based producer, which is made from a mix of the three varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It shows ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit, with a little tannin to go with the fruit. Brisk, it’s a honeyed, very sweet wine that will be ready to drink from 2016.
  • Lightly mineral, floral and soft, this opens with aromas of wild berry, plum, leather, menthol and a balsamic note. The rich and round palate offers juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and star anise alongside assertive tannins.
  • Vin de Jura is the name of the vineyard of the producer, which is now located on its estate in the northern part of the appellation. This wine is as fresh as possible, with its apple, lemon and pineapple fruits. It is full of acidity, a crisp, fresh aftertaste. Drink now.
  • Light red-fruit aromas and flavors are pungently intimate. It is light yet powerful, with a plump mouthfeel.
  • I am a bit of a sweets-candy type, so the fruit was a little on the sweet side, but it’s not a big problem. It’s fine, but the richness is a problem. The aftertaste is rich, but still needs time to soften.
