Though not indicated on the bottle, this is entirely sourced from the Les Collines vineyard. There is a talented hand at work here, in the way the components knit together, crafting a seamless, complete wine with levels of intense, dark, chewy fruit and tannins. The finish is dense and long, and the wine shows far more depth than many of its 2010 peers.
