Medium red. Complex, soil-driven scents of raspberry, smoke, pepper, rose petal and dried herbs. Dense, smooth and quite dry; offers good breadth but quite withdrawn in the early going, showing limited fruit sweetness and a bit dominated by its firm tannic spine. Fairly intense black cherry, menthol and peppery herbs throughout. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins that will need patience. (ST)
A markedly floral nose offers up notes of herbal tea, earth, spice and both red and dark cherry nuances. There is both excellent volume and mid-palate concentration to the refined and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that possess focused power on the elegant and lingering finale. This is picture perfect Chaignots that should be approachable after only a few years of cellaring if that's your preference.
