Dark and ipe plum fruit, plus nuts and mint. The palate is dense, a touch creamy and pure, with that plum fruit. Quite saline, beneath it all. Tannins are rich and like cool limestone across the tongue. There's real intensity to be found here. Great thrust at the back. Super cool limestone structure. Integrated and ripely, freshly grippe wine. A fascination. Delicious
Aging: A villages wine but spends 15 months in 50% new oak, similar to the 1er Cru wines.
Food Pairing : Mild cheeses such as goats cheese and creamy but not too mature brie. Seared tuna especially with an Asian accent such as a sesame crust. Chicken or rabbit with a creamy mustard sauce. Rack of lamb with a herb crust.
