Last bottle of this and what a beauty. Deep dark kirsch liqueur and garrigue with a hefty dose of animale and leather. This regular cuvee is as good or better than many luxury cuvees produced in CdP (IMO). Lovely wine that I can’t have enough of. paired incredibly well with grilled, herb-marinated leg of lamb with couscous, roasted onion, and parsley salad.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
