Ratings and Tasting Notes:
WA=90 A full-bodied 2007, Les Asteries reveals scents of espresso roast, white chocolate, blackberries, and black currants, a deep, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin, and surprising volume and density.
AG=88 Deep red-ruby. Aromas of black cherry, blueberry, liquorice, dried flowers and spices are a bit stunted by oakiness. Sweet and rather soft on entry, then nicely stuffed with energetic fruit in the middle. The broad finish features some slightly drying oak tannins.
