This French-owned and biodynamically made wine is starting to show a little bottle age, but in all the best ways. The red-berry fruit is still primary, but is accompanied by wisps of dried flowers and freshly ground savory herbs. There's a touch of vanilla too and an underlying stony earthy minerality. Texturally, it's silky, gripped gently by savory tannins that help structure the still primary red fruit and herbal and mineral nuances. Balanced and elegant with a long finish, this is drinking well now but should cellar nicely until 2027.
