Scores and tasting notes
After the prodigious 2005, this is a so-so effort from proprietor Francois Mitjavile. A medium dark ruby color is accompanied by scents of dusty, earthy, sweet and sour cherries. The wine hits the palate with a medium-bodied mouthfeel, but hard tannins appear in the narrow, austere, disjointed finish. With aeration, some chocolate and herb characteristics make an appearance, but the wine’s structure dominates. I suspect it will dry out within a decade.
