Good deep red. Complex nose combines spicy oak, smoke, flowers, blood orange and leather, plus a suggestion of white fruits. Juicy, intense and energetic, with a firm stony underpinning giving tension to the mid-palate. Still a bit of a dip in the middle, but should be filled in with more time in barrel. This used to be a round style of wine, noted Liger-Belair, but now the vines' roots penetrate the calcaire that lies a foot or so beneath the clay layer. (ST)
An unusually high-toned nose displays notes of cranberry and raspberry that combine with very supple and round middle weight flavors that possess good freshness and an underlying sense of tension on the delicious if not particularly complex finish.
Richly spicy fruit but good energy too. Real structure still but the flavours are definitely tertiary. 16.5/20
