The southern neighbor to les Grandes Places, le Plomb is a friendlier to farm high elevation plateau of sorts, most prestigiously known as a large holding for Jamet and Rostaing. This too is a mica-schist dominant site, with SSE exposure. I haven’t yet tasted this ’14, but I do have reason believe that Raynolds’ reviews are exactly opposite, with this being the more implosive and structured of the two bottlings….it will be fun to compare them to decide for ourselves! This is a far smaller production, so please keep that in mind in making your requests. (I don’t know how much I will be able to secure…)
“Bright violet. Expansive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh black and blue fruits, potpourri and vanilla. Supple and sweet on the palate, offering intense dark berry liqueur flavors underscored by a smoky mineral quality. Much more approachable and fruit-driven than the Montmain bottling, finishing with excellent power and length and smooth, slow-building tannins.” 92 points Josh Raynolds for the 2013 vintage, NOT THE ’14 OFFERED HERE
