Color: Clear, deep black with sustained crimson highlights Aroma: Powerful, showing dark fruit at first, along with some "garrigue" and spicy notes. Aromas of fruit (cherries, prunes) macerated in "eau de vie" can also be detected. The whole is underpinned by mineral notes (graphite) that bring freshness. Taste: Big and full on the palate supported by impressive velvety structure. There's flesh, weight and depth, all rounded off by an incredibly long finish. The dark fruit comes through again, giving a crisp sensation underpinned by nice mineral tautness.

Ripe and spicy, with a concentrated core of damson plum, molten chocolate and dark cherry flavors, showing notes of tar and mocha. A firm, dense and rich-tasting Douro red that should age well. Best from 2014 through 2018. 300 cases imported.

From Rhône producer, M. Chapoutier, this is a new venture. The style is elegant while also powerful and complex. It brings out strong minerality, black currant fruit and tense acidity, resulting in a wine for aging. Drink from 2016.
