2008 Vintage: 

Bettane et Desseauve: 16/20: A Clairet, which is both powerful and elegant: showing a complex nose, developing pure and delicate fruit with attractive nuances of kernel and lilac followed by a fragrant palate with delicious fruit and a tender texture, which continues to linger in the mouth and retains excellent freshness. This wine will rapidly become an irresistible must!
