Rated 93 Points Jasper Morris
The vineyards are at the southern end of the appellation, mostly above the road. They offer quite a different style to the northern vineyards of the Denis Mortet label. One third whole bunch, 25% new wood. Clear bright purple, the wood makes an impression to begin with then floral rose and peony notes emerge along with deep red fruit. Not too deep but with finesse. The oak needs to dial down, which it certainly will.
