Producer: Fabre Montmayou
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Dark berries and licorice on the nose, plus high-pitched notes of violet and juniper and exotic mocha oak tones. Silky and glyceral on entry, then utterly seamless in the middle palate, with harmonious acidity giving shape and grip to the dark berry and spice flavors. At once thick and alive, thanks to its felicitous balance of fruit sweetness and acidity. Finishes suave, savory and long, with building fine-grained tannins that coat the tongue and cheeks. Not a particularly modern style but varietally expressive and impressively concentrated.
