Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 97

Made of 100% Merlot, the deep garnet colored 2010 La Violette comes bounding out of the glass with notes of kirsch, black raspberries, baked cherries and mulberries plus wafts of stewed tea, cedar chest and dried Provence herbs. Full-bodied, the palate is still carrying a lot of oak with youthful black and red berry preserves layers and a chewy texture, finishing very long and spritely. [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 18/02/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2045

JancisRobinson.com – 17.5

Tasted blind. Deep garnet with a soft pink rim. Gorgeously seductive red-fruits nose, just a little bit meaty – and more so in the glass. Firm and more savoury on the palate but still packed with fruit sweetness. Thick but smooth tannins. I don’t know if the meatiness has anything to do with brett but at the moment it is not excessive. (JH) [12/02/2020]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2035

Vinous – 96

Deep red-ruby. Rich aromas and flavors of cassis, dark cherry, cedar and minerals, complemented by sexy oak nuances. Rich but not excessively weighty on the palate, offering an outstanding combination of density and intensity of flavor. Finishes with noble, fine-grained tannins and subtle notes of black pepper and herbs. Less dainty and floral than the 2009, but with greater depth. As with many wines from the late Catherine Pere-Verge’s portfolio, the tannins here have smoothed out considerably since the Primeurs. [Stephen Tanzer, 07/01/2013]
