Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red with a crimson hue, 2009 Les Pavots reveals a pro- found, layered bouquet of coffee, cocoa bean, black currant, straw- berry, cigar box, black and red cherry, plum liqueur combined with vanilla, blueberry, subtle notes of cedar, pepper and its signature 'garrigue' touch.
