Description by winemaker 

Pure expression of Lamartine style: more concentration than extraction. Aromas of morello cherry, chocolate notes, a wonderful alliance of power and elegance.


Reviews

Guide Hachette :    "A mainstay of the appellation Cahors; very successful; bouquet of cherry alcohol, violet and caramel; the well-blended tannins support the round of soft palate; beautiful liquorice finish.  The harmonious wine which will soon develop in 2014-2015."

Vinalies : "Intense and profound red colour, this excellent wine offers a beautiful aromas of mocha and spices on nose. The mouth is soft, round and harmonious, with well integrated tannins. A persistent finish with notes of cherry and liquorice."

Guide Gault & Millau :  "An expressive and rare wine. Nice jam on nose with the note of vanilla. The mouth is silky with full of softness."
