This is glass staining purple, a little reduced on the nose with an austerity that takes a moment to adjust to but once it opens up, the juice and poise become clear and the mineral edge increasingly enjoyable. Perhaps not the joy of a 2015 here, but it’s a good wine and should age well. Hubert de Boüard and Dominique Haverlan.

Jane Anson – Decanter – 90 pt.
Blueberries and blackberries with chewy tannins and wet-earth and hot-stone character at the finish. Solid and tight.
James Suckling 90/91 pt.
The 2018 Les Cerisiers has a deep garnet-purple color and gives a wonderfully pure nose of warm black plums, baked blueberries and cherry pie with hints of dark chocolate, spice box and Provence herbs. Full-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black and blue fruit, supported by soft tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a spicy lift.
