The 2021 Les Pensées, from the tongue of clay in the gravel Lafleur vineyard, was picked on 28 September and 2 October. It has a wonderful bouquet with pure brambly red fruit, light graphite scents and just a touch of the estuary. The palate is beautifully proportioned with fine tannins, quite structured and saline, very mineral-driven and as fresh as a daisy towards the finish. Excellent.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2048
