The 2022 Les Grands Chênes was picked 15 September to 6 October at 40hL/ha. Red plum, cinnamon and light briar scents unfolds on the nose, just a touch of melted tar. The palate is medium-bodied, powdery in texture, dusky black fruit with some wood tannins just controlling the finish. A second bottle was slightly better with a chocolaty aftertaste.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2036
