Second vintage with Penelope Godefroy, and at the start of the organic conversion. This is lovely, already accessible with its dark brambly fruits and soft tannins. The emphasis here is definitely on pleasure, and it's extremely tasty as a result.

Features a tasty core of steeped plum and black cherry fruit laced with dried anise, incense and mineral hints. Reveals a flash of savory through the finish, though the fruit has the upper hand overall. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 9,517 cases made.

Blackcurrants and leaves, as well as violets. The palate has silky yet dense and smooth tannins wrapped in dark-plum flavors. Drink or hold.
