Where the Croix de Bois was all about red fruits, this is all about black. Blackcurrant, black cherry and elderberry. The palate is just as succulent but has more vigour and drive. The tannins are a little more robust and prominent, whilst acidity is bracing. There’s lots of extract and everything augurs well for a long future.
