"Medium red with a hint of amber at the rim. Redcurrant, mocha and leather on the nose, plus a whiff of underbrush. Supple flavors of cherry, raspberry and leather show modest depth. Finishes a bit short, with slightly drying tannins. Lydie Boillot noted that there was very little hail in the family's village parcels in 2014." (VM)
