Like its “big brother” (the vintage 2009), this wine is fresh and complex. Nectar mineral, fruity expressing particular notes of blackcurrant, redcurrant and raspberry. Smoky notes due to aging in barrels.
Ageing 100% in new oak during 14 months. A very fresh wine with a complex nose. It develops aromas of raspberry, red fruit (especially cherry) associated with toasty due to drums. It possesses a little acidity to lead the tasting. A Tannins that is a little young but already well done.
A beautiful fruity bouquet associated with a wooded side drain but tends to decrease after oxygenation. Beautiful fresh red fruit, crunchy (raspberry, strawberry) associated with blackcurrant. A little acidity on the palate just supports fruit flavors. To leave resting one or two years. Or if you’re in a hurry, use a decanter.
(vinified in stainless steel to highlight the contributions of local limestone) A powerful nectar, complex, fruity. It develops notes of black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) associated with red berries and spices. It is round, “greedy” at the end. A wine that you can drink at this point, but I would advise you to wait a few…
Ageing in barrels during 8 to 12 months. A nice structure, a nice mouthfeel. It develops notes of black fruits (blackcurrant, wild blackberry) associated with notes of strawberry. A mineral, concentrated, tannic but elegant wine.
A pleasant wine, round, fruity and complex. It develops notes of juicy black fruit (cassis, black cherry), raspberry, violet combined with notes of tobacco and spice. A wine that is more tannic than the previous one (this is related to his youth) but with a slightly shorter final.
(100% Cabernet Franc. Bleeding Rose 50%, 50% pressing) A light wine, round, with a good sugar / acidity balance. It reveals aromas of red fruits, cherry and raspberry. Good length.
(using barrels of 400 liters). A fine wine. It reveals aromas of fruits (blackcurrant and ripe red fruits) also developing vanilla, woody (mocha). The palate is fleshy, well balanced and well structured.
A complex wine that develops a bouquet of tobacco associated with currants, raspberries, small berries and hints of cherry. It also reveals notes of liquorice. A pleasant fruity end. The tannins are well done but a little young for my taste.
A well balanced wine and rounded but spicier than the vintage 2011. It also develops notes of raspberry but also small strawberries, blackcurrants, with a final cherry. Little acidity in return.
