And lastly, we have just the third vintage of the Court Vit rouge, a young vineyard directly adjacent to la Ronce planted approximately 10 years ago to a variety of clones taken from la Ronce. It is an early ripening site of kimmeridgian white marne soils and little limestone pieces. Guilhem remarks that it is a remarkably floral wine, on pretty violets, not as tannic, and is redder fruited than the Ronce. This should be terrific…..
“A cool yet definitely ripe nose reflects notes of both red and dark cherry, spice and a whisper of exotic tea. The medium weight flavors are not quite as concentrated, but they are notably finer with excellent depth and persistence and especially so for what this is. In a word, terrific. 89/2024” Allan Meadows ——–> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention” for the 2019, NOT THE 2020 OFFERED HERE
