La Folie Douce

Reddish purple with bright gleams. The nose is intense, with oaky notes intermingling with black fruit like fig, blackcurrant and blackberry, but also black olive. In the mouth it is powerful and opulent, with well-integrated tannins. It opens with notes of dried fruit, evolving to laurel and grilled chestnuts. The 2019 vintage was supremely healthy with superb maturity and balance. As with the precedent vintage, it also offers rich notes of truffle, mocha, and dark chocolate. The altitude of this terroir brings great verticality to this wine, offering the promise of immense ageing potential.
