Deep layers of red/purplish fruit, cedar, tobacco, mint and dried flowers are framed by a super-classic expression of structure that keeps things in balance.
The wine is seriously rich with solid tannins. The tannins are softening into a more velvet texture that suits this style of wine well. It is giving a smoky character to the wine as well as richness. This is a great wine, very aromatic and concentrated.
This is a really beautiful red with crushed-berry, plum, bark, mushroom and earth character. It’s full and creamy-textured with lots of tannins, but they are integrated and polished and flow across the palate.
...bouquet of ripe black cherries, cassis, damp earth, leafy herbs, chocolate, and smoked tobacco...medium to full-bodied on the palate, has perfect tannins and flawless balance, all making for a brilliant Saint-Emilion that brings richness and power paired with finesse and elegance.
...aromas of blackberries, cassis, warm spices, violets and pencil shavings, framed by a deft touch of nicely integrated new oak, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with terrific depth at the core, powdery structuring tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, precise finish.
Large-scaled, capturing all the rich and flamboyant cassis, steeped plum and blackberry reduction notes...broad swath of loam and warm gravel underneath as tobacco and alder accents fill in wherever possible.
Floral and dark-fruit fragrance. Beautiful texture, the fruit and tannins intertwined. Real density of tannin but nothing aggressive. So much freshness. Pure, long and clean on the finish. Precise and harmonious. Absolutely spot on.
