This comes from two plots – Ez Echards and Petit Gamets – which lie downhill from Les Champans. The wine was 100% de-stemmed, and has seen no new oak, but is ageing in barrels which are 2-3 years old. Medium purple-red in colour, with fine fruit on the nose, it has rich body with lovely balance, silky texture and gentle tannins. What’s not to like about this? (for drinking 2019-2025+).
