LCBO Note Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
This domaine, originally a truffle orchard, was converted to a vineyard in the early 1900s. TASTING NOTE: Vibrant pale orange. Expressive nose of strawberry and red berry fruits with a fine tangy note. Ample, smooth, concentrated palate driven by delicate tension, honest spicy fruit aromas and a harmonious sensation. A wonderful, virile wine for full-flavoured foods. Score - 88 (gilbertgaillard.com, 2018) Price $ 45.95
