Linear and very tight and focused with blueberries, blackberries and hints of hazelnuts and spices. Medium-to full-bodied, tight and focused. Delicate and very fine.
The 2017 L’If includes an additional hectare this year, one of four replanted after it was purchased by Jacques Thienpont and it includes some Cabernet Franc. It was picked between 28 September and 4 October with hardly any vines touched by frost. It has a very lucid purple hue. The bouquet is quite opulent and very pure, quite focused and gaining in clarity in the glass with copious blueberry, cassis and pastille like aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. It might not be the most complex L’If I have tasted but I like the salinity that comes through in its final third. Give this three or four years in bottle.
Blended of 91% Merlot with 9% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 L'If is deep garnet-purple in color, featuring beautiful crushed red cherries and black raspberries on the nose with underlying black plums, baking spices and roses notes plus a waft of Sichuan pepper. Medium-bodied with wonderfully elegant tannins and beautiful freshness, it has well-sustained mid-palate fruit and a long, earth-laced finish.
Deepest crimson with purple rim. Lifted, lively peppery pure fruit. A little more extraction than for Le Pin and planning to pick a little earlier. No stems. So rich in fruit and lovely freshness even with compact tannins. Exuberant fruit and super-smooth texture. Long, too. (JH)
