A wine that keeps close to the dense path of Yannick Amirault's wines. Firm, dark and with strong elements of wood aging, this is solid and chunky. Perhaps there is a touch too much extraction, but this is mitigated by the rich black plum and berry fruits and final. lifted acidity. Age for 4–5 years.
