From a single, north-facing vineyard, on limestone soil, winemaker Emmanuel Pageot calls this his 'grand cru'. It actually takes a day in the decanter for all of its subtleties to reveal themselves. Reading through my tasting note for the 2012 vintage, I am struck by how very similar this 2014 is. Once again, we have myriad aromas of red berry and cherry, garrigue herbs, flowers, damp earth and subtle leather and spice notes. The palate is crammed full of fresh and crystallised bramble and raspberry flavours, with a hint of orange, subtle herb and spice nuances and an equally subtle streak of saline minerality. With fine, ripe, tea-like tannins and mouth-watering acidity, this is another very fine wine, which can either be enjoyed young (though preferably decanted 24 hours in advance) or aged for a good few years. Certified organic and biodynamic.
