2016 Les Pavots meets the eye with a near-black ruby color and deep ruby rim. The nose displays a sophisticated bouquet of fresh leather, morel mushroom, vanilla bean, black fruit, cherry, blackberry, blueberry coulis, and a stylish 'garrigue' touch. Fullbodied and elegant, the wine offers the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is dense and round, with supple tannins and subtle mineral notes leading to a long finish. Approachable now, the wine provides a classic presentation of our estate's terroir. It will handsomely reward four years of cellaring and continue to age gracefully for two decades.

Wine SpectatorThis delivers good intensity, with a racy and defined beam of plum sauce, black currant preserves and black licorice, all carried by a graphite spine. On the toasty side, with fruit to match. Very solidly built. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 3,614 cases made.
