Fragrant and supple, this fleshy red evokes floral, vegetal, sweet berry and spice aromas and flavors. It's seductive, layered and backed by lively acidity and solid tannins. More approachable than its peers, but needs time. Best from 2014 through 2036.
As it usually is, here the nose is more reserved with black fruit and earth aromas nuanced by deft oak hints that complement the broad-scaled and powerful full-bodied flavors that are both robust and sappy, culminating in a deep, sweet and impressively layered finish that is dry and austere in the best sense. Good juice with solid upside potential and while the resurfaces on the backend, the oak is relatively well integrated already.
Good deep ruby-red. Black fruits, redcurrant, smoke, minerals and nuts on the complex, soil-driven nose. Voluminous, silky and round, with the impression of soil character carrying through in the mouth; complicating notes of game and leather. A very rich and satisfying wine with a long, broad finish featuring dusty tannins. More noteworthy for its sheer size than for its cut and precision. 'Drink this now or over the next 30 years,' says Gros. 91+ (ST)
