‘Minimal information on the website, but the back label tells me ‘Old vine, single vineyard, 41 days on skins, old French barrique.’ All good things. Juicy boysenberry and blackcurrant, a little chocolate, bay leaf, spice, and violets. It’s medium-bodied, and treads that fine Franc line of just a little varietal herbal mixed with ripe blue fruits. It’s supple and fine in tannin, feels unforced and pleasantly brambly, dried herb, sour cherry and dark chocolate bitterness on a good long finish. Dusty chalky tannin trims it nicely. It’s a lovely wine. No doubt. 93 points.’ Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
