The attractively named Les Sorbets doesn’t refer to a frozen desert but the rowan trees (sorbiers) which used to be found here. TA (sulphuric) 3.8 g/l, TA (tartaric) 5.82 g/l, pH 3.4. 35% whole bunch. 16 months’ oak ageing, 35% new. Cask sample.
Intriguing, floral, violet nose, intense dark hue, plenty of weight here. Savoury palate. Firm tannins, needs more time to soften. A touch stalky at the moment. (AWH) 13.3%
