If you like framboise you will adore this wine — 2015 was a huge success for this property. As in most years, this wine tastes and smells of raspberries and earth, but with a gentle middle and a soft finish due to the extraordinary vintage. Round, seductive, and filled with easy-drinking character. Great party wine, and a super value.
