As its name suggests, Les Brulées is a warm, well-exposed south-facing vineyard. The wine has richness, with layers of almond, spice and green plum flavors. There is a strong element of barrel fermentation and aging, rounding the wine out, but the rich fruit can easily balance that. Imported by Frederick Wildman & Sons, Ltd.
