The 2013 Reserve de la Comtesse has a rather surly bouquet, a seaweed note that infuses the black fruit, perhaps just missing a little intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a tad sour on the entry and just needing more depth in the "shallow" middle.
- Beautiful purple.
- intense nose with fruity aromas.
- soft and elegant attack, with a little touch of wood and a good balance.
