Run by a young, enthusiastic woman (Alexandrine Roy)? Alexandrine, the fourth generation at this family domaine, does everything herself - including pigeage by foot! -and the wines are very pure expressions of both her winemaking philosophy. Alexandrine's light touch with vinification results in remarkably pure, supple, and gorgeously silky wines; she destems 100%, uses oak conservatively (and based on the character of a given vintage-nothing is done by rote), employs relatively brief elevages (around one year in wood), and cherishes purity and elegance above power.
Pure and supple, this red exhibits lively cherry, raspberry and violet flavors that unfold through the lingering finish. A fresh and harmonious wine, with a crisp structure. Drink now through 2022. 100 cases made.
Here too there is a mild wood influence to the wonderfully layered, ripe and dense aromas of dark berry fruit, plum and pungent earth. There is impressive concentration to the cool, delineated and intense medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with plenty of dry extract. This is a solidly powerful wine yet the mouth feel is sophisticated as the shaping tannins possess a very fine grain and I particularly like the sense of harmony on the long and palate coating finish. This is an exceptionally good villages and is worth a special search. Drink: 2018+. Comments: Outstanding Top value
