Les Renardières Red 2004

Deep ruby robe.
A woody initial bouquet followed by a second more sparkling analysis with raspberry, cherry, blackberry aromas with exemplary hold.
Ample and rounded attack followed by a full mouthfeel, with sumptuous fruit overtones, which extends delightfully.
A little patience is needed before the woodiness is expressed with decisiveness. Very promising.

Returning to the family domain in 1998, Philippe Gilbert immediately turned his attention to establishing the vineyard’s credentials. This is an unending task demanding conviction, careful selection of advisors and total commitment to both one’s own quality requirements and the provision of service to partners, which have always been, and indeed remain, a part of the credo of this proverbially humble owner. (…) A remarkable vineyard from all points of view.
