Tasting Notes Moderately dense very dark red with a thin purple rim. Warm, extroverted aroma offering sweet blackberry and black raspberry fruit typical of Rasteau together with tertiary accents. The palate is dominated by sweet, ripe black berries and is lasting, revealing the first signs of bottle development. This is not a dense, potent Rasteau, rather one exhibiting clarity and moderate concentration. The warm aftertaste shows the equilibrium, acidity and tannin of the structured 2010 vintage. Can be drunk now and will improve to 2017/2018. Based on Grenache and Mourvèdre.
