Shows a lovely savory hint, with green olive and tobacco notes wrapping around serious chalky grip. The core of butter, cherry, red currant and blackberry fruit sits in the background for now. Dense and vinous, this is driven by minerality, and should age wonderfully as the fruit comes forward.
Even darker than the Terres Brulees, black at the core. This is more savoury but not yet expressive. There's that same dustiness but this is more smoky and doesn't have the delicacy of the Terres Brulees. Rich and juicy, the tannins dense but without aggression. Very polished and fresh on the finish.
