(2022) Les Lavières is a south-facing Premier Cru on limestone-rich soils. This cuvée used 70% whole-clusters in fermentation followed by 16 months in French oak, 20% new. In the house style, it is a ripe and rich style, 14.5% alochol and plush, but there is lovely fragrance and a definite floral touch to the perfume, giving a real sense of elegance. In the mouth the fruit is all crushed raspberry and spice, that lovely fragrant style carried through with sweet red fruit, herbs and a hint of exoticism. The tannins and alcohol give weight and a sense of fleshy richness, the acid and a touch of gravelly terroir adding a keen edge, in a bold, big, but delightful wine.
