Coming from the En Cerise and Cailloux vineyards, the 2017 Camaspelo doesn't match the stunning 2016 but still offers a gorgeous perfume of red and black currants, toasted spices, flowery incense, and green tobacco that develops nicely with time in the glass. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, with silky tannins and a great balance, it's an ethereal, balanced Bordeaux blend (it's mostly Cabernet Sauvignon) that's going to develop even more complexity with 2-4 years of bottle age and have 15-20 years of prime drinking.

Appealing aromas of green pepper, cherry, fresh herb, saline and moist earth are followed by concentrated, focused, pillowy-soft cherry flavors. It brings a compelling sense of purity and freshness, with mouthwatering acidity seldom seen from this area. It's a complete standout.

The Cabernet-based 2017 Camaspelo displays with a deep ruby core that fades to a soft purple edge and gives up aromas of blackberry, cassis and dark cherry skin that waft with delicate herbal essence and dried purple flowers on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is energetic and lively on the palate, with a balanced expression and ends with a long, classic finish. This will age gracefully over the next decade and a half.
