The selected plots come from the two sectors of the AOP
- micaschist terraces from the Côte Brune for structure and complexity;
- gneiss and loess from the Côte Blonde providing finesse and elegance.

Note de dégustation:
" Brilliant ruby. Intense dark berry, floral, black pepper and exotic spice aromas pick up smoky mineral, cola and incense nuances as the wine opens up. Candied violet and star anise suggestions complement vibrant black raspberry, cherry-cola, blueberry and vanilla flavors. Finishes impressively long and juicy, with steadily building tannins framing lingering blue fruit, spice and floral notes. This is quite an impressive success...". 22nd December 2022 - Vinous Media - Josh Raynolds
