"The aromatics are nothing short of remarkable, kicking off with some fairly classic themes including cranberry, blackcurrant and currant, all very proper for a cuvée dominated by Cabernet Franc, and I could say the same of the threads of mint and green peppercorn which quickly join them. Coming in behind, however, are richer notes which seem to me to reflect the character of the vintage, with layers of toast, coffee bean and dried black fruits, as well as a touch of orange zest. It is enticing, and the palate carries it all forward in a dry and savoury style, albeit one that is richly textured, toasted and full of grippy potential. This is a very good Anjou-Villages which bats away any memories of the old spicy and angular style Anjou is known for and replaces it with something more seductive and polished. The vintage helps, of course. The alcohol level also reflects the vintage though, declared as 15%, although this doesn’t come across on the palate." - 93 Points, Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor
