About This Wine
A semi-carbonic traditional method with 80% whole clusters. The must underwent a long, natural ferment utilizing wild yeasts in open-top vessels with submerged caps. The wine matured over the following 8 months in a combination of small tanks on fine lees and seasoned French oak achieving a subtle integration of oak spice characters and texture.

Tasting Notes:Brooding aromas of dark berries with licorice and forest floor nuances. The palate is rich with blackberry and plum pudding flavors balanced by fresh acidity and a well-placed tannin backbone. The wine finishes as rich and layered as it begins. A serious yet versatile Côte du Py.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"Deep glistening violet. Powerful, mineral-accented red/blue fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of incense and candied violet. Silky, energetic and appealingly sweet, offering palate-staining black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. In an energetic style, showing impressive finishing thrust, smooth tannins and strong, mineral-dominated persistence." - Josh Raynolds (October 2019)
