The 2022 Les Cruzelles was picked between 1 and 12 September and matured in 50% new oak. This has plenty of fruite on the nose: small red cherries, redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit, a touch of cedar in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful definition and mineralite, dark fruit, hints of black tea and spices, really harmonious and sappy on the finish. Possibly the best Les Cruzelles that I have tasted at this stage and sure to be an unbeatable value-for-money.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2050
