"Dark stony minerals and toasty biscuity notes with plenty of licorice, star anise, graphite and dark plum-soaked herbs. Full of interest. The palate has a neatly articulated frame of ripe and sturdy tannins, cradling a slightly tarry, ripe, dark plum-flavored palate. This has a saline, succulent resolve. Great wine. Best from 2020."

Fruit goes into lined concrete vats whole-cluster for a 2- to 5-day pre-fermentation maceration followed by a 15- to 21-day fermentation. Pumpovers are employed to carefully integrate oxygen into the wine. Wines are aged for one year (in 1- to 3-year-old barrels purchased from top estates in Burgundy and partial in concrete vats).
