Made from 100% tiny “millerandage” grapes, or shot berries, which give much higher solid to liquid ratios; it is not made every vintage). This is reserved to the point of being almost mute and the nose requires aggressive swirling to reveal the liqueur-like aromas of plum, spice, newly turned earth and a hint of wood. There is outstanding intensity and mid-palate density to the succulent medium weight plus flavors that culminate in a youthfully austere finish that is at once quite firm yet racy. While the prior wines should drink reasonably well after only a few years of cellaring, this beauty will require a bit more patience. Highly recommended. Allen Meadows - Burghound
The Roy family has been cultivating grapes for four generations and in 1982, they began bottling their own production to fulfil their passion. With much effort and an acute focus on further enhancing their wines, Marc and his daughter Alexandrine bought a few more blocks of vineyards to increase the size of the Domaine to four hectares.
