(2019) Same winemaking as for the 2005 (from 2006 fermentation and ageing switched to amphora), fermented in open barrels with 10 years in large barrels and bottle before release. Drier and less open than the 2005 at this stage, a very dry, bloody and lightly iron oxide character - not oxidised, but that ferrous edge. Again, less openly giving, but deep in there are balsamic strawberries and herb and floral nuances, and all the hallmarks that this will be terrific with time, when the score might notch up a point or two.
(2018) From the Languedoc, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Merlot and Mourvèdre in the mix for a medium-pale rosé, with a fairly simple and straightforward strawberry and raspberry fruit, the palate fruity and generous, a little briary leafiness and a slightly astringent quality to the acidity stopping it a little short, but keeping it fresh.
