(2016) Only native yeasts. Nice medium colour and density, a creamy nose, with subtle smokiness and chestnut character, and a meatiness to this, lighter floral nuances too are quite complex. Quite truffly, but good red fruit too. The palate has a subtle red and black fruit dryness, with a juicy personality, really quite dry, both the acidity and the silky tannins, that chestnut dryness.
(2016) A little Cabernet Franc and Syrah in the blend. Has a glossy forward fruitiness, cassis and sweet black cherry, with again some lift of floral and blueberry. Creaminess of texture, and that similar family trait of dry palate and a bit of tannic grip, that dustiness again.
(2016) 10% new oak. Lovely sweet fruited nose, a deep and glossy wine, but has the freshness of red fruit and balsamic, slightly medicinal note that is attractive, with some herbal notes but spicy black fruits drive it. Just a little rounding and smoothing vanilla from that touch of oak, but a lean, grippy tannin and acid structure.
