This is initially a touch lighter - and possibly even more elegant - than previous vintages of this cuvée. As ever, it exhibits the trademark La Marfée blackcurrant leaf and myriad summer fruit aromas, with notes of orange peel, garrigue herbs and tobacco. The palate is beautifully balanced, with sweet-sour red cherry and redcurrant fruit, herb and spice flavours, accompanied by juicy acidity and gentle, ripe, tea-like tannins. There's a tiny hint of savouriness (herby, rather than meaty), but it really is all about the fruit, in a wine that really is elegance personified. Whilst made for food, it is vivacious and refreshing, with a sweet-sour tanginess that makes it dangerously drinkable.... especially whilst cooking! Although this is La Marfée's "entry level" red, it is a serious wine by anyone's standards. And whilst it is lovely to drink now, it is also worthy of a further 5 to 8 years of ageing. And at the price, a real bargain. Biodynamic.
