Tasted vis-avis the Clos des Papes, PB much prefered this on the night. Quite Burgundian style, butter, brioche, minerals here, a dense creamy texture and a very good acidity. Immense balance, classy wine. (6/26/2020)

Tightly coiled for now, with pepper, garrigue and briar notes wrapped around a core of steeped cherry, damson plum and blackberry fruit. Cedar and sandalwood accents line the finish, revealing a hint of blood orange. This needs some cellaring to unwind fully. Best from 2016 through 2026.
