12.0% alc., 8,000 cases, $20. Sourced from 25- to 30-year-old vines including ones in Les Longeroies and Clos du Roy, aged 12 months in a combination of 2- and 3-year-old French oak barrels and stainless steel. Imported by Louis Latour, Inc., San Rafael, CA. · Reddish robe. Scents of wild berries, violets, oak toast and stem. Tasty strawberry, cranberry and pomegranate core with an underpinning of earthiness and a grapefruit peel tang on the notably acidic finish. Mild dry tannins make for easy approachability. Score: 85.
