Bettane et Desseauve - 16/20

Jancis Robinson

Mulberries and a touch of campfire smoke on the nose. Intensely dark, purple-black fruit with the tang of pomegranate molasses and the sweetness of spiced dates. The tannins have the reassuring and comforting grip of someone holding your hand, tightly but not squeezing. Wonderful freshness in the clean finish – it makes me think of an open window letting in a cool breeze on a hot day.
