Bright medium red. Wild aromas of raspberry, plum, red cherry and exotic spices, plus a hint of meaty reduction. Dense and tactile but a bit youthfully imploded, with strong mineral definition giving it a penetrating quality and excellent lift. Opens out nicely on the juicy, perfumed, long finish, which features firm but ripe tannins and an impression of chalky energy.See detailed press review

Cazetiers doesn’t get a whole lot better than this.
