Northern Rhône: 2016 and 2017 Reds (Sep 2019)

Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes candied blue fruits, pungent flowers, spicecake and baking spices. Sweet and precise on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cassis and violet pastille flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends power and finesse and finishes impressively long and spicy, with harmonious tannins adding framework and gentle grip.
