Peter Michael l'Espirit des Pavots 2017
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
Generously rich and intense, 2017 L’Esprit des Pavots greets the eye with a near black color and highlights of crimson ruby. The wine displays blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, hallmarks of the Les Pavots terroir, along with plum, and hints of mocha and vanilla bean. The Au Paradis terroir brings notes of currant and crème de cassis with meaty nuances. The palate is full-bodied and concentrated, exhibiting savory of leather, tobacco and white pepper and accents of chestnut, black truffle, cedar and supple tannins with a lingering finish. Fruit forward and enjoyable at release.
Blend: 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot
