The year of benediction


This exceptional year offered ideal conditions from A to Z, crossing the finishing line under the best auspices. Rigor engendered simplicity: mother nature let time do its job, thereby providing absolutely perfect grapes. This is a well infused vintage with silky tannins, and devoid of exaggeration. Over maturity gives way to smooth elegance, intense floral aromas and charisma.

Bettane & desseauve
"Nose of liqueur of blueberry and spices, elegant and refined mouth with behind a fruit that returns well, and finally of the grace, this wine will gain in refinement with the wire of the breeding.

15,5 - 16,5/20
"A very beautiful color, this wine expresses a frank ripeness of fruit and a fine woodiness." The mouth is generous, gourmand with a very sincere fruity and is distinguished by an elegant structure and a fine extraction. Comes from new wood, like 55% of the final assembly."

" Bought by Olivier Decelle in 2004 ( Mas Amiel). Next to cheval Blanc but needed recuperation. 50% Cabernet Franc. Very sweet start with fine delineation and with very much its own character. Terroir speaks more than oenologist. Subtie and very fresh but not forced. Lots there. A second note reads!: light and fresh. Very much unforced sweet and racy wine. Transparent and with apparently less tannin than most Deroncourt 2010s. "
