A racy, noble offering from this terrific vineyard, the 2008 l’Arrosee exhibits admirable purity and elegance as well as sweet raspberry and kirsch-like fruit, and underlying floral and crushed rock notes. Medium to full-bodied with ripe tannin, this is a long, intense, rich, but delicate, light on its feet St.-Emilion to consume over the next 15-20 years.
Deep ruby-red. Exotic aromas and flavors of raspberry, sandalwood, incense, smoky oak and white pepper. Smooth, sweet and nicely delineated, with insidious acidity giving shape and lift to the middle palate. Wonderfully perfumed in the mouth, showing sexy oak tones and a note of clove oil. Finishes with firm but suave tannins, sound structure and a lingering note of black cardamom. Very seductive wine.
This is ripe, smoothly textured, with bright fruits. The tannins are structured but let the fruit speak.
A broad, smoky style, exhibiting tobacco and sweet earth notes that lead the way for mulled fig and blackberry fruit flavors. The silky finish lets cedar and sanguine hints check in. This really shows its length as it airs in the glass, with nicely buried minerality. Drink now through 2015.
