This wine is all tannins at this stage, smothering the black fruits. That will change as it matures, revealing dense blackberries and plums as well as keeping its tannins as a base for the exuberant fruitiness. The wine comes from a blend of different parcels that together make up just over four acres of this vineyard owned by Louis Jadot. Drink this wine from 2025.
