About the Wine
90 points, Burghound
“A complex if not especially fresh nose speaks of red cherry, plum liqueur dark currant, earth and a whisper of old leather. As one would reasonably expect given the domaine’s consistently low yields there is fine volume and concentration to the strikingly rich big-bodied flavors that deliver solid length and depth on the distinctly firm and warm finish. To describe this as an atypical 2017 would be an understatement as it’s ripe to the point of being particular.”
