"Black as it should be for a 100% Malbec, with beautiful purple reflections on the disc. The nose is perfectly ripe, showing aromas of black fruits and Morello cherries, as well as some smoky notes. Ample on the palate, the wine is rich in aromas and perfectly controlled tannins. The aging remains discreet, submitting entirely to the powerful character of the wine. Notes of cassis and chocolate accompany the fresh, serrated finish."

"This top wine from an organically run estate is powerful. Black fruits aged in new wood have a perfumed, spicy character as well as layers of toastiness. The rich, complex texture of the wine, with minerality contrasting the sweet berry flavors, sets it up for aging. A Fournié family wine, it will be ready from 2023." -RV, 11/1/2019
