Cuvée des Cadettes is only created in the best vintages. 2015 is one of them. It is borne from a 20 acre vineyard planted with 85 to 100 year old vines. Hand harvested, hand sorted, you get the idea! Exciting aromatics of spice, dark cherry. There is a freshness on the palate that is loaded with fresh black fruits, with silky tannin. This will not be here for long.

Wine Enthusiast

There's a rich, decadent core of black cherry, plum and strawberry in this wine, but it's layered with piquant accents of anise, smoke, earth and fur. It's richly fruity but freshly composed and fringed by fine, persistent tannins. Ready to drink now, it should improve through 2030.
