Producer Tasting Note

Explosive, deep and powerful, the 2015 possesses remarkable richness and intensity. A host of black cherry, smoke, gravel, menthol, tar and licorice notes abound. The wine seemed to acquire more and more freshness as well as finesse.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Dense dark ruby colour. Youthful and pure nose, floral with ripe dark fruit, cassis, blackberry, plum and fresh herbal notes, discreet wood and a hint of tobacco. Nice bite on the palate, dense and full with a bright freshness and layers of crushed dark fruit, some herbal notes like sage and bay leaf, discreet wood on the finish, long and dense finale. Very promising."

93/100 points, Andreas Larsson, TASTED, October 2017

"The nose is elegant, powerful, racy, structured and quite captivating. It reveals notes of blackberry, terroir and slight notes of blackberry, strawberry, ripe redcurrant associated with hints of ripe black fruit, licorice / licorice stick, chocolate, caramelized oak as well as an imperceptible hint of pepper and cinnamon. The palate is fruity, well balanced, gourmande and offers a beautiful juicy / acid frame, minerality, fleshiness, a slight suavity, a good structure as well as a beautiful silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of strawberry, crushed raspberry, juicy blackberry and slight notes of crushed / ripe redcurrant combined with slight touches of liquorice stick, tobacco, spices and a subtle hint of oak. Tannins are well-built, elegant and very slightly firm. Good length and good persistence. A beautiful, fresh fruity, racy, well structured and gourmand wine."

94-95/100 points, VertdeVin, February 2018
