Tasted on 22 March 2024 by Werner Elflein

Cuvée made from 90 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Petit Verdot and 5 % Tannat. Ethereal, spicy nose with aromas of raspberry, raspberry stone and light red fruit. In particular a hint of redcurrant. Smoky, reminiscent of wood burning in a fireplace on a winter evening. In the mouth, initially with a good balance between fruit and tannins. Ripe, but also distinctive tannins, partly coarse-grained, partly fine-grained, partly fine-sandy. Still needs time to hamonise. Very good length. However, the wine changes noticeably the longer it remains in the decanter. After more than an hour it is black-red and opaque, the roasted flavours cover the now dark berry fruit and slight bitter tones appear. Uncertain prognosis.
