The 2020 Le Petit Lion was picked September 10–29 and matured in 30% new oak. It has a straightforward bouquet of scents of raspberry, cranberry and touches of pomegranate, all intermixed with loamy aromas and undergrowth. But it is certainly fruit-forward, as you would expect. The palate is framed by lithe tannins, judiciously peppered red berry fruit and a harmonious, caressing finish. This will offer great pleasure in its youth but will probably age for longer than most will allow.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2036
