(2021) Quite a distinctive peach tone to the colour of this certified organic rosé, a blend of Tannat, Pinenc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Small redcurrant aromas are joined by a little pomegranate, before a palate that is bone dry, again focused on those smaller red berries - redcurrants and raspberry - with plenty of pithy, sour orange and lemon acidity.
(2021) Soils are mainly sand and silt on sandstone and schist, this cuvee aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, followed by a further 4-6 months in tank. There's a really appealing stony, mineral and taut character here, apple aromas span nutty Cox's pippin to green apple, the picture balanced between richness and alacrity. Gorgeous palate too I must say, textured and creamy, but with brilliance and a long, very fresh and vibrant finish that is mouth-watering.
(2020) Pale, translusecent, much more developed truffle and briar character than the 2017, lovely wild herb notes - quite garrique-like. The palate has a beautifully cool, pure fruit quality. The elegance is striking here, pure and delicate in comparison, a touch of toffee apple, a lovely edge to this, finesse and fine tannins and cool acidity add to that impression of elegance.
