Notes of smoky reduction presently overshadow the underlying fruit and soft wood aromas. There is also a touch of wood present on the big-bodied, concentrated and muscular flavors that possess good power on the rustic, saline and slightly warm finish. Once again, this could be approached young or held for a few years first.
(there was no hail here, so Billaud picked this fruit the following weekend, according to his original schedule): Bright, light yellow. Very ripe, musky nose combines caramel, smoky oak, spices and a fusel element. Concentrated and tactile on the palate but a bit blocky and undifferentiated today, in need of time in bottle to shed some of its baby fat. This very young wines finishes with some warmth. A bit too easygoing for grand cru: will this develop more nuance with some bottle age?(ST)
