always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent,
sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is
spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs,
violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors.
Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine
from Jean-Paul Daumen that tastes like the essence of this stunning terroir. JD
