Vintages has jacked up the price by $2. Why? Because they can. The wine itself is recognizably south France, with of dark fruit, backed by hints of local herbs and black pepper. A bit less complex and shorter finishing than past vintages to my taste, but a good wine nevertheless. Tasted August 2014.
Lacks a bit of punch at first but then opens up with deep, rich olive, cassis, plum, and other purple/dark fruit aromas along with a rustic earthiness on the palette; a bit rough and wild, which is fine, but it's the herbal bitterness that emerges later that while adding to the overall complexity isn't entirely successful; somewhat more nuanced and balanced on the second day; perhaps not terribly refined, but yet more evidence of the astonishing value to be found in France's Midi.
