With its biodynamic viticulture, this is an exciting small domaine close to Beaucastel. The pure fruit flavors, very direct and intense, attest to the quality of the grapes, while the vinification is simple, hands-off, leaving great flavors of ripe black plums, spices, fresh tannins and a great openness. Give this wine 5 years of aging after it arrives, probably sometime next year. Imported by Martin Scott Wines.
