Cask samples tasted at the domaine. Sample cuvée 1: Peléat. Subtle nose but pristine and pure on the palate. Grainy, relatively light body, chewy texture. Dark-chocolate aftertaste. Sample cuvée 2: Baumes. Almost porty on the nose, then superb red fruit on the palate with milk chocolate and firm tannin. Has substance and definition yet levity too. Sample cuvée 3: Méal. Perfume, lift, elegance, floral. Long, complex, firm – yet effortless. Sample cuvée 4: Ermite. Black cherry, fine tannic weave, soft yet bitter grip. Great acidic zip here. Dry, rounded, long blackcurrant finish. Sample cuvée 5: Bessards. Liquorice and leather with tough, rubbery tannin giving tension. Finesse too – gorgeous spicy fragrance on the long, long finish.
