Another positive surprise was this wine from a forgotten vintage. Fresh if slightly lactic on the nose with sour cherry fruit, herbs, lavender, and real garrigue notes. Lovely aromatics. A very elegant Beaucastel in the mouth with tannins that are a touch rustic but that contribute such a crisp, fresh feel to the wine and enhance the game, bright red fruits. Not a powerhouse by any stretch of the imagination but very well balanced and delicious for near term consumption. Who knows this may turn out to be another 1972! 2008-2015 89pts

Winemaker's Notes:

'Highly Recommended,' Wine Spectator: A solid wine, not as glorious as the top vintage, but still ripe and earthy. A leathery-barnyard component to the black cherry flavors, lingering on the finish. Drink now. (3/31/94)
