(from a .20 ha parcel). This, together with the Bonnes Mares, is easily the most complex wine in the range with its broad ranging and beautifully layered aromas of plum, spice, black raspberry and sandalwood. There is excellent concentration to the ripe, silky and lilting flavors that possess a beguiling texture on the balanced, mineral-driven and impressively persistent finish. This is a really interesting wine because it combines both power and finesse with superb delineation. In sum, this is an exceptionally classy wine of grace and purity. 94/2022+
