We call the Blue Label “Baby Clio” ….. and this moniker has caught on over the years. From onld vines coming from the same extremely low yielding chalky white soils as Clio at 700 meters, just aged less in barrique (18 months) and with the addition of a Syrah component.
Purple/black in colour, it proffers a nose of pain grille, graphite, earth notes, spice box, black fruits, and a hint of balsamic. It opens in the glass to reveal excellent density, savory flavors, plenty of spice, and a lengthy, pure finis. It will evolve well for
2-3 years and drink well for many years.
“Licorice and espresso notes frame black cherry and currant flavors in this thick, polished red. The muscular tannins are well-integrated, and there’s just enough acidity to keep this lively. Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2028. 2,500 cases made, 1,250 cases imported” – 91 points, Wine Spectator. — TM
