In this extraordinary wine, the signature characteristics one expects from the domaine are lushly presented. The nose opens slowly at a leisurely pace with an array of savory scents including lightly roasted coffee, saddle leather, and bright raspberry. The fruit profile presents additional black fruits including boysenberry, as well as baked cherry with a hint of cigar spice. Very fine, polished tannins define the palate with a touch of sweetness from the cast of artisan coopers. Primarily Cadus, the house cooperage of Louis Jadot, and the Sirugue cooperage.
