(fermented in a concrete tank, then aged in Taransaud barrels, 50% new): Good deep red. Aromas of licorice pastille and smoke. Dense, sweet, juicy and bright, with harmonious acidity shaping and lifting the raspberry, cassis and spice flavors. A captivating hint of rocky minerality contributes to the impression of finesse. In a very suave style, finishing with sweet tannins and superb persistence. Baron told me that he is slowly bringing down his new oak percentages, and this wine is clearly the better for the new approach.
