(2021) From a plot of 4.81 hectares on rocky, calcium-rich soils, the vines are 40- to 50-years old, harvested 11 - 13 September. Slightly more new oak (25%) in this cuvée than the others tasted. Lovely bright red fruit aromas, bold cherries and, a hint of raspberry moving into briar and touching clove and cinammon. A finely-wrought graphite element. Nicely fleshy ripe berries, the tannins here are powerful but also very ripe and creamy, along with that light herbal/spice note and the gentle tobacco smokiness of the barrels. The impression is powerful, but svelte and full, with excellent freshess. Delightful.
