Full ruby red color, fading pink-orange rim. Pungent, carnal nose: marrow-rich red fruit, iodine, beef stock, black cardamom and terres rouges stone. Evinces more game and saline character on the palate with counterpoint berry seed and cherry pit bitterness, medium-full: forest black raspberry, montmorency cherry, groseille. Some grain and a bit of astringency to the tannin: some of that is climat, some of that is vintage. Effusive, chalk and beef jus finish. Your usual Jadot extraction. Barb says a bit “Cabernet-like structurally”. Yes, this will always be a bit resolute. But not hard or brutal. Just a bit frank .. all the while winning points for transparency and sauvage honesty.
