The first thing that stands out for me is how aromatic this wine is, with aromas of crushed ripe cherries, blackberry, dark plum, dried sage, rosemary and underbrush with a smoky and a stony minerality. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, with a creamy and juicy texture and flavours of dark ripe fruit, savoury notes and gentle wood spices, balanced acidity and silky tannins. The finish is long and juicy with great flavours.
This was my first experience with this wine and a much more enjoyable experience than the straight Rousillon Village from Bila-Haut and worth the extra dollars. Real easy to enjoy and worthy of another purchase; the bad news is that it’s already sold out in my market (Ottawa). I will approach the next vintage little wiser. Enjoy on December 24, 2012.
