(Clos des Corvées Pagets is situated within Aux Corvées). A cool, pure and restrained nose grudgingly offers up pretty aromas of red currant, earth, lavender and a hint of the sauvage. There is excellent underlying tension to the delicious and well-detailed medium weight flavors that flash moderate rusticity on the firm, serious and mildly austere finish. This will definitely require at least a modicum of patience. (90-92)/2029+
