Cuvée Violette 2018 - Clau de Nell

Anne Claude LEFLAIVE


96/100 Parker

Cellaring: 2023 - 2050

Tasting by Stephan Reinhardt on 14 October 2021 : "The 2018 Anjou Violette is deep, rich and very intense but elegant on the nose, pure and refined, with aromas of black fruits, tea and kumquat. The palate is full-bodied, deep and generous, with a silky, refined and taut texture, a blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that is one of the highlights of the vintage. Fabulous! A must buy! Tasted at the estate in June 2021."
