One of the best vintages I’ve had from this label, if not the best. An impressive wine where power and finesse meet — not an easy task in this region. Deep yet a bit austere with aromas of garrigue, plum and black olives underlined with a pleasing touch of reductive notes. Broad and elegant tannins with pleasant perception of freshness from the small percentage of stem inclusion. A wine to buy for your cellar. Will be exceptional in 7 to 10 years.
