The estate's top red wine. Winemaker Simon Bertschinger uses re-toasted oak barrels, which he prefers over brand new barrels, so the oak influence is more subtle. This is quite a deep colour with aromas of cassis and bramble and background notes of pepper and spice. The palate is ripe and fleshy, with tea-like tannins balanced by nice acidity and again a hint of peppery spice. It is undoubtedly youthful, but already showing real elegance, and certainly opens out after a couple of hours in the decanter. And it certainly went very nicely with a dish of Toulouse sausages, fatty pork and sautéed potatoes. Drinking now, but with a lot of development ahead of it.
