This is rather candied on the nose with aromas of red licorice, necco wafers and tootsie rollls layered over and obscuring the more fruity aromas. Air tempers the sweetness adding in subtle herbal flourishes. A bit weighty on entry, this has a seductive texture, smooth and polished but also subtly tactile with dusty little tannins. the flavors are juicy with acidity and full of red berry fruit that’s a little rusty and wiry. This is tart and firm in the mouth and yet pliant with attractive ripeness of flavor and texture that at the same time keeps the wine firmly on the side of freshness. Eminently drinkable and interesting, this just has a bit of a curious nose. 90pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification Method: Destemming, no crushing, cold soak - skin contact, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increasing temperatures, maintenance of wine ‘’sur lies’’ for eight months with regular stirring. Ageing: Eighteen to twenty four months in Allier – Bertrange French oak casks medium grain, white toasting and eighteen to twenty four months in the bottle.

Tasting Notes:

Bright dark ruby color. Complex nose with typical bouquet of sundried tomatoes, smoky black fruits, strawberries, dark cherries, licorice and spices. Full body, with rich fruit depth, blackberries, plums, herbaceous hints and oak on the back. Solid, velvety tannins and long aftertaste with persistent aromas.
