Editors' Choice. Though he'd rather be a musical genius, Jean-François Reaud did wonders with this estate, in the family since 1904. Dense and full of tannins, it also offers ripe fruits. Its structure and density match the intensity of the fruit, meaning the wine has a great future. With a dense aftertaste, the wine will age, so drink from 2022.
Tobacco and bay leaf notes lead the way in this red, backed by modest black currant and black cherry fruit flavors. The charcoal spine holds the finish and adds a light rustic feel. Drink now through 2022. 42,000 cases made, 1,600 cases imported.
