...black cherries, kirsch, baked plums and boysenberries scents plus nuances of bay leaves, star anise and pencil shavings with a waft of roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of juicy black fruits with a firm backbone of rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with great length and purity.
Freshness blends with a solid tannic structure in this ripe wine. It gives the wine a lift and succulent berry flavors and acidity.
Rich aromas of mulberries lead to similar flavors on the very smooth, juicy and supple palate with plenty of fine tannins.
...plenty of black cherry and mulberry fruits, solid complexity in its salty minerality, dried flowers, iron, and spice aromatics, medium to full body, a bright spine of acidity, and outstanding length...classic, pure, incredibly precise, and long.
...good depth and resonance, but not the detail or expansiveness that is the norm these days. Pretty floral and spice overtones add lovely aromatic presence to this pliant, open-knit Saint-Émilion.
Seductively sweet fruit on the nose without excess. Very pure. Lovely chalky depth in structure to begin, matching notes of graphite and red fruit. This becomes a touch dry towards the finish, with notes of cedar and arresting tannins pinching the length.
