Dégustation la robe est pourpre sombre, presque opaque. Le nez évoque la mûre et la myrtille sur le chaudron, avec une touche de truffe, de pain grillé et d'épices. La bouche est ronde, pleine, veloutée, avec une matière dense et pulpeuse et un fruit mûr bien expressif. Il est contrebalancé par une grande fraîcheur aromatique. Le tout forrme un ensemble généreux, mais bien équlibré. La finale dévoile une mâche gourmande sur la crème de mûre et le cacao, rafraîchie par une pointe mentholée.

What is an author wine?
This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.
An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.
This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.
As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
