An exotic fruit salad with predominantly mango, mandarin and peach, surrounded by smoky notes.It’s generous and round, with a concentration of white peach and Reine Claude plum. Some spiciness (anise, mint), a pleasant bitterness and a trace of white pepper as it develops in the mouth. The aftertaste is long and intense, but somewhat reserved and tannic! This much too young wine benefits from at least 2-3 years of bottle aging to release some of the complexity. Certainly not open before 2018 and probably also use a carafe. Has good potential to age nicely and will be impressive. An absolute wine to be combined with food. [July 2016]
Wine Spectator: “Definitely a domaine to watch. The wines are very much in the image of the vigneron too understated, stylish and relying more on nuance than over power.
