A beautiful crushed rock/liqueur of minerality characterizes this inky/purple-hued St.-Emilion. Tannic, with lots of pure black raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with a notion of charcoal as well as the aforementioned rocky/powdered stone component, this long distance runner requires another 5-6 years of cellaring. It should age easily through 2030+. (RP) 95+
This is a beauty, with a really pure and still-youthful beam of plum, boysenberry and raspberry compote flavors streaming through, gilded with fruitcake and a hint of sweet cocoa, but ultimately carried by a long graphite spine. Rather open through the finish despite the youthful persona, and hard to resist now. (JM, Web Only-2016)
(13.8% alcohol; 3.63 pH): Bright red with a pale rim. Candied violet, cherry cola, almond paste and savory herbs on the expressive nose. Smooth and suave on entry, then lively and bright in the middle, delivering opulent red cherry, mineral and floral flavors of uncommon purity and poise. Outstanding length and balance on the perfumed, seamless finish. Another standout wine by Thienpont and Derenoncourt. Surprisingly drinkable already but has the stuffing to age and improve for at least another 15 years. Apparently, no cabernet sauvignon was included in this blend. (ID)
