This is relatively firmly reduced and if you’re tempted to try a bottle young, be sure to allow it a thorough aeration first. Otherwise there is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the delicious but solidly intense medium weight flavors that display the usual excellent complexity of a typical Le Puits Sec as well as outstanding length on the balanced finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. This isn’t the most refined wine in the range but it is one of the most age-worthy and complex. With all of those attributes duly acknowledged, this definitely needs at least a modicum of patience and will need all of a decade, perhaps even more, to arrive at its apogee.
Brilliant red. Fresh red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of sassafras and candied rose, with a bright minerally element adding vivacity. Spicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors that take a sweeter turn with aeration. The mineral note repeats emphatically on the long, focused finish, with smooth tannins providing structural support. (JR)
