"The colour is anything other than pink, with coral and pale amber tones that look serious and grown-up. The perfume is multi-layered with equal measures of spice and tanginess, tart stone fruit and abundant red fruits. But this is not a wine with any trace of raspberries or strawberries. There is tension here with pomegranate, cranberry, sour red cherries, pomelo and rhubarb. This is a delicious wine with obvious flesh and allure, but it is extremely carefully delivered. It makes other houses look like they produce wines for carefree teenagers, while Domaine de l’Ile is designed for experienced adults only! Interestingly, Pierre and Jean-Basile brought a bottle of the 2020 vintage to show how beautifully these wines age. While this was only the second vintage of this wine, it is precision-cut, resplendent and incredibly satiating. The colour had barely budged, and the fruit was soothing and the finish keen. This is a wine to savour as much as it is one to treasure. Take my advice and track down these wines – you will not regret it!"
18.5/20 (Drink now – 2026)
