This is a special cuvée, produced from the estate of the Prissette family. It is certainly rich and dense but it also has a crisp edge coming from the black-currant fruits. The tannins are still firm and young, underlining the weight of the wine. With a final dry edge, the wine has considerable potential. Drink from 2020.
