Noticeable wood and menthol nuances fight somewhat with the otherwise fresh, bright and attractive earth and red currant aromas. There is a lovely sense of detail to the lively and delicious middle weight flavors that are shaped by ripe tannins on the lingering if ever-so-mildly warm finish.
(from 40-year-old vines; "barely chaptalized," according to Frédéric Esmonin): Deep red-ruby. Pure, minty aromas of black fruits, licorice and violet. Juicy, lively wine with a strong licorice flavors. Not fleshy but boasts good dark fruit intensity and excellent acidity. The building tannins avoid coming off as dry or hard but will need a couple years to unwind. (ST)
