Description

Relatively heavy reduction renders the nose unreadable. There is excellent richness, size, weight and power to the medium weight plus flavors that brim with mouth coating dry extract that buffers well the firm tannic spine on the strikingly long finish. This is austere but not really rustic and should amply reward mid to long-term cellaring.

– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 92-94

 

Deep, dark red. Strawberry, mocha and complex soil tones on the nose. At once sweet and peppery, in a distinctly masculine, imploded style; showing more spice than fruit today. The tannins are ripe but less elegant than those of the Echezeaux, with the peppery stem element carrying through on the slightly dry, oaky finish.

– Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, Score: 91-93
