...voluminous, multi-faceted bouquet with engaging incense and mineral notes infusing the beautifully defined black fruits. The palate is very well balanced on the entry with more tension and nervosite than the Chambertin, building effortlessly towards a quite regal, sophisticated finish whose mineralite lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding.
Taut and linear, with cherry, strawberry, smoke, tobacco, graphite, iron, vanilla and clove flavors. This is unyielding at this point, despite the complexity, with a steely structure and a lingering tobacco finish.
Very subtle and solid with a wonderful combination of sweetness and structure. Long and nervy. Transparent. Throbs on the palate. This is what burgundy is all about. Excitement. Sweetness without being sickly. Simply gorgeous!
Lovely spicy lift to the aromas of dark berries, coffee, mocha, medicinal herbs and black tea...light on its feet, with its tangy, sharply delineated dark berry and mineral flavors currently overshadowed by sexy spice and incense elements...inherent sweetness shines through its almost painful tannins on the very long, refined finish.
...the lightly wooded nose is notably spicy if brooding with mostly dark berry fruit and earth scents... There is a sophisticated mouth feel to the velvety and extract rich big-bodied flavors that coat the mouth with exceptionally firm but phenolically mature tannins on the explosively long, complex and impeccably well-balanced finish.
