Before sharing the tasting notes, my personal opinions are… I guess Lecheneaut probably extract too much in their village wines. Higher fermentation temperature (~34) contributes rich flavors and aromas, however, it also brings a bit rough tannin. I think more aging probably gives these village wines some improvements.
