Shows a hint of reduction on the nose, translating to pure cherry and blackberry flavors, with spice and mineral accents. Displays grip and energy, showing balance and fine length. Best from 2016 through 2028. (BS, Web only-2013)
Bright red. Lively aromas of black cherry and chocolate complicated by spices and flowers. Sweet dark fruit flavors are a bit reticent today and lacking in complexity but already convey lovely finesse of texture. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. Very Santenots and not at all overripe. This has a pH of 3.4. Winemaker Eric Germain noted that none of these wines have pHs higher than 3.5, while in 2009 none were lower than 3.6.
Here the ripe nose is slightly more elegant with a similar aromatic profile of intensely earthy dark pinot fruit and soft spice scents introducing rich, intense and velvety middle weight flavors that display fine precision on the solidly well-balanced and persistent finish.
