This is really fantastic, offering blackberries, blackcurrants and crushed stones. Medium to full body with bright fruit and a long, vivid finish. Agile. Another fantastic wine from here after the 2018.

80% merlot, 10% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon

Coming from the incredible team at Pavie, the 2019 Clos Lunelles boasts a big, ripe, incredibly sexy and mouth-filling style as well as notes of black plums, black cherries, tobacco, and Asian spices. It brings serious fruit and opulence and is full-bodied, has a round, expansive mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and some obvious underlying minerality. It's already drinking beautifully and should deliver the goods over the coming 10-15 years. While it leads with its fruit, I expect it to show more classic limestone character as it sheds some baby fat. Best After 2022
