"Classic dark raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes intertwined with a touch of spring flowers are a hallmark of this fabulous jewel of a terroir. This dark ruby-hued, medium-bodied, soft, elegant, pure, rich 2012 from proprietress Catherine Pere-Verge is undeniably a star of the vintage. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
At press time, I learned that Madame Pere-Verge had passed away after a long battle with cancer. She was a very strong and dynamic woman I shall miss."

"Pure Merlot, picked over three days from 6th October and micro-vinified in Saury barrels for seven days, the La Violette (the late Catherine Pere-Verge’s “baby”) has a typically opulent bouquet of candied orange peel, kirsch and fresh figs that are well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple rounded tannins. There is very good volume here, lovely smooth velvety tannins with succulent red cherries, wild strawberry, white pepper and minerals towards the long sumptuous finish. One of the hedonists...but still a very well made La Violette. Tasted April 2013."
