Here the stem influence is less obvious though the floral component remains quite strong with a highly spiced nose of violet, rose petal and plum that introduces rich and highly seductive flavors that brim with a more than sufficient amount of dry extract to coat the palate. The ultra-elegant and hugely long finish is shaped by extremely fine tannins and the ’09 Amoureuses is class in a glass. A remarkable effort.

60% whole bunch. Not very deep. Very broad and seductive nose with a note of white pepper. All visceral pleasure! Lively fruit that is almost as racy and light as that of de Vogüé. Upbeat, bright fruit. Though the tannins, while light, have an almost metallic note. Long.
