Description

Olivier Bernstein owns no vineyards, working on contracts for grapes instead. His 2009s are certainly very ripe, though his gift for winemaking is clear. A man to watch.

Very dense rich purple colour. Thick texture, though fresher on the palate than the first nose suggested. There is plenty of detail in here, swimming in a sea of ripe fruit. Black cherries coat the mouth.
