ITEM 8191680 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility
...boasts a dense purple color along with lots of gorgeously pure black raspberry, black currant and kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with notions of spring flowers, tapenade, licorice and spice box.
Lots of cocoa powder and coffee frame a massive block of dark plum, black currant and fig fruit, while massively endowed tannins stride from start to finish. Cassis, anise and Lapsang souchong tea notes hang in the background for now...
...intensely perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, cherry-cola, anise and smoky garrigue. Spicy and incisive...superb balance of richness and vivacity...One of the top wines from the entire Rhone from this outstanding vintage.
Very substantial and handsome...The impact of this wine is mainly on the finish. Lots of tannin and clearly made for the future.
