Bright medium red. Broader on the nose than the Chaffots (all of these wines spent 20 months on their lees, according to Laurent Lignier), with its musky aromas of strawberry, raspberry and smoky minerality enlivened by a note of rose petal. Pungent, very intense flavors of cranberry and raspberry are given added punch by hints of crushed rock and orange zest. Delivers lovely density, size and aromatic complexity. There's nothing the least bit off-vintage about this long, perfumed wine. Conveys a slightly lower-acid impression than the Chaffots but with no shortage of juiciness or energy. The tannins are firm but suave.
