*Sweet Spot, Outstanding* This is more deeply pitched still with its notes of plum, leather, black cherry, newly turned earth and smoked meat hints. The succulent, rich and seductive broad-shouldered flavors manage to at once be juicy yet serious as the firm tannic spine that emerges on the gorgeously long finish makes very clear. Excellent.
Medium red. Lively perfume of raspberry, spices and dried flowers complicated by leather and soil tones. Supple on entry, then quite backward--in fact almost austere--in the middle palate, less open to inspection today than the Champeaux. Conveys a touch of rusticity to its flavors of leather, spices, earth and minerals. This classically dry wine will need at least five or six years in the cellar to uncoil. 92+ points. (ST)
