This is a lush and medium-bodied wine from four-year-old vines. It has an attractive balance between the acidity and the sugars, lending a crispness and a tangy texture. It is soft and ready to drink, with a soft, velvety texture. Drink now.
The entry is a tight, tight, austere line of blackberry, cassis, cedar, smoke, tobacco, baking spice and sandalwood. The palate is fresh, very fresh and ready, with concentrated black cherry and blackberry flavors. It’s a blend of barrel accents, such as pepper, sandalwood and a touch of mocha, but the finish is long and clean.
This is a dry, dry, tight wine that’s rich and opulent, with a touch of coffee and cassis. It’s full bodied with a juicy, honeyed edge, and the finish is lightly spiced.
This is a slightly sweet wine, with honey and pineapple as its key ingredients. It’s nutty yet not over-ripe, and the finish is full-bodied, with a lingering finish. A great apritif.
The full-bodied, ripe and juicy fruit is cut with a fresh acidity, allowing the wine to be both floral and tangy. It is a light and fruity wine that is ready to drink.
Though he said he had to wait until June to release his wine, Guigal is right. The wine is a rich, explosive, full-bodied black plum and black cherry, with a core of tannins and acidity. Its power is concentrated on the finish, where black cherry and plum flavors are enhanced by firm tannins and fresh acidity.
