A soft and silky red with plum and chocolate character, medium body and soft tannins. Fresh finish. Drink now.
Bay and sage notes lead the way, followed by a core of plum and red currant fruit. Displays moderate toast on the finish, where a sanguine edge marries with light leafy hints. —J.M.
The 2013 La Garde possesses good intensity, but the tannins remain a bit rough around the edges. Smoke, tobacco, incense and dark fruit emerge, but only with great reluctance.
Fine floral and cassis nose, good fleshy fruit with Graves earthy grip in the middle, good depth. 16/20
Bright, ripe berry fruit and intense black liquorice and aniseed on the mid palate. Hale and hearty – no ailments here. 16/20
