Tasting Notes

An unsung hero of the Arnoux-Lachaux cellar, the old vines of Poisets again give a wine of extra depth and intensity, the tannins refined but providing structural support. On the palate, there is plenty of sweet fruit to enjoy but so too spices and a light touch of pepper. Drink from 2015.

Reviews & Scores

?A lightly spicy but notably earthy nose of a ripe and very fresh array of mixed red berries gives way to rich and utterly delicious flavors that possess excellent volume before terminating in a seductively textured finish that is shaped by dense but fine tannins. Again, this is first rate for its level.
89-91 Points, Burghound

(from vines in excess of 70 years of age, according to Pascal Lachaux): Deep red. Aromas of red and black cherry and licorice. Dense, concentrated and sweet, with a sappy quality to its dark fruit flavors. Finishes with serious but fine tannins and very good length.
88-91 Points, Stephen Tanzer

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...
