"Medium bright red with hardly any amber. Slightly high-toned, Bordeaux-like aromas of red and darker berries, tobacco and soil. A powerful, dense, structured wine with a strong combination of acidity, saline minerality and tannic spine. And yet the raspberry fruit maintains sexy sweetness and opulence. Finishes with excellent length and distinctly dusty tannins that build with air. This was the vintage when François Faiveley invested in a system that would allow him to carry out a cold maceration but Erwan noted that "we may not have been careful enough using the new equipment the first year." Faiveley stopped using this sytem in 2007, investing in temperature-controlled tanks. I like this classically dry wine a little better than Faiveley does, owing to its power and impression of salty dry extract. Made from a very late harvest, beginning on October 3. (13.5% alcohol; 3.35 pH; 3.8 g/l acidity)" - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (Mar 2019)
