From Mary Taylor:
"I met Christophe’s wines first. I had tasted a number of bottles that day that I wasn’t thrilled with, but when I opened his Buzet, the light went on. Super graceful. Haunting, tertiary rich red berry, coffee bean, tobacco leaf. But not oaked. No primary ready-made effects. I brought the wine to a friend’s blind Bordeaux night where we taste classified growths and grand cru classe wines. Everyone loved my ‘mystery wine.’ I was thrilled to reveal that I was pouring a Merlot / Cabernet from a farm in the Southwest – 1 hour away from Bordeaux."
"2017: Also a good year. The spring was sunny and sprinkled with some rain. The summer was a little drier than the previous one, and harvest was very pleasant. We feel the season’s slight dryness in the mouth, as the wines are warmer and have a little more substance. The 2017 offers a nose of robust fruits mixed with a smell of leather, foretelling a complex wine with great finesse. The delicate mouthfeel with its lightly expressive tannins and long finish promise a few years of keeping."
