There is a pronounced ripeness to the less elegant and much more sauvage-inflected aromas of cassis, plum liqueur, freshly turned earth and forest floor nuances. The palate impression though is more like that of the Bressandes in that it's muscular yet reasonably refined while evidencing focused power on the well-balanced and gorgeously persistent finish. I very much like the mouth feel thanks to the dense but fine-grained tannins and this should also amply reward extended cellaring. *Sweet Spot*
Full ruby. Austere nose hints at black fruits, licorice and soil tones, with a violet element emerging with air. Broad and deep but utterly primary and unforthcoming. The dark fruit flavors showed increasing creaminess as the wine opened in the glass, but this very firmly structured wine will need extended aging to absorb its substantial tongue-coating tannins and to reveal its full personality. The longest of these 2015s to this point. (ST)
Notes of black cherry, liquorice and rich earth framed by spicy new oak precede a more supple, refined and elegant palate than the Bressandes. It has nice concentration and supple but assertive tannins. Like the Bressandes, this is still primary and reserved. Drinking Window 2025-2045. (WK)
