(from a 1.5 ha parcel in Le Charlemagne). A very ripe but attractively fresh nose features liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, cassis, violet and plum that are nuanced by hints of earth and game. The very rich, full and velvet-textured flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that confers a seductive mouth feel onto the robust and ever-so-mildly rustic finish that is at once long, serious and moderately austere. This well-balanced effort should age well for many years and note that an abundance of patience will be required. 94/2024+
