93+ pts wine Advocate March 2021

The elegant, spicy, peppery and floral 2018 Cabernet Franc contains 10% Malbec, as these varietal bottling are rarely 100% varietal. It has intense and pungent flavors reminiscent of freshly cracked black peppercorns and wild herbs. The ripeness is contained, and the wine has a surprisingly low pH that provides very good freshness and a vibrant palate, more so given the very fine tannins and the tasty flavors that lift up the finish. Superb Cabernet Franc at an unbeatable price. 26,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2019 after 15 months in centenary oak foudres. Drink:2021-2025

93 pts James Suckling June 2021

Aromas of crushed berries with chili and mineral undertones. It’s full-bodied with firm tannins. Structured and savory. Tannic finish with length. Hints of herbs to the blackberry fruit character. Try after 2022, to let the tannins soften a bit. But already attractive.
