Tasting Notes:

"Clearly superb fruit and what some term as "grip" or structure. In our context, this implies weight and flavor and not heaviness or overpowering density. The purity of the fruit of La Joie is exceptional now, but it will become even more velvety, without losing its dark fruit, over the next decade." - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron
