Winemaker Françoise Pechon has produced the wines here from the first vintage in 2013. A mix of Darnajou, Taransaud and Sylvain coopers provide a tapestry of beautiful cedar spice and cigar box notes. Full-bodied, creamy and dark, leading with crème de cassis and layered with chocolate and mint. Long beams of sappy tannins glide to an earthy finish. (JC
