...aromas of cherries, strawberries and raspberries mingled with peonies and licorice...full-bodied, layered and velvety, with a broad attack that segues into a deep, concentrated mid-palate framed by ripe tannins and lively acids.
Ripe, perfumed and beautifully layered aromas include notes of poached plum, dark raspberry liqueur, warm earth and hints of violet and exotic tea. The ultra-sleek, intense and focused medium weight plus flavors possess an almost pungent minerality before culminating in a moderately austere, linear and impressively persistent finale. This is an unusually powerful Chapelle and is also quite firmly structured.
