Nick scored this wine: 92/100

This cuvee, coming from 50+ year old vines, is a year in, year out value that's a no-brainer. Notes of black raspberries, cassis and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, charming, elegant and polished red that has no hard edges and a supple finish. It's perfect for drinking over the coming 4-5 years with grilled meats and fine cheese.
