The wine's tannins dominate this tight, dark wine with its dry core. There are hints of extraction, giving bitterness initially that will need to blow off. As the wine ages, the wood aging will ensure that it smooths out and gives greater open black fruit richness.
Owned by the Lafaye family, situated near the village of Saint Pey d’Armens, this 12 Hectare vineyard plot has mature 35-40 year old vines. Hand harvested, fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak this Grand Cru displays exotic plum and ripe blackberry fruit. Sweet juicy tannins, spicy cinnamon, cedar oak and a lively acidity complete the picture.
