This is the luxury cuvée from vineyards in the Seze family since 1918. With its perfumed fruits and firm tannins it is serious as well as sumptuous. It has weight and a dry texture that will soften into the blackberry fruits and generous structure. This wine, with its still-firm texture, needs to age, so drink from 2022.
