A lofty and concentrated rose, Les Jeunes is the first herald of the 2009 vintage. The wine displays a bouquet of rich fruit and earth notes of fresh cherry skin, pomegranate, creme de cassis, spruce, unsweetened cranberry, and subtle clove. A full-bodied and expressive effort, the wine shows a precocious depth that is truly inspiring.
