Incredibly elegant and pure, as are all of the Vernay wines. Christine”s improvements in red here are remarkable……From the lieux dits Lancement and Semons (above Corps de Loup), seriously good.
Here is Josh Raynolds” review of the 2010, not this wine:
“Vivid ruby. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet presents red berry liqueur, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a strong note of spicecake. Sappy, penetrating raspberry and cherry-cola flavors show wonderful depth and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Balances richness off vivacity on the strikingly persistent finish, which features silky tannins and a lingering floral quality.” 93 points
