...bouquet of sweet red berries, spices, rose petal and grilled squab...medium to full-bodied, it caresses the palate, its exquisitely refined tannins entirely concealed in a succulent core of fruit.
There’s a very attractive rose and spice edge to the fresh red cherries here, as well as a subtle, earthy nuance. The palate has a beautiful array of plush, smooth cherry flesh with long, velvety tannins that are very approachable already.
...powerful bouquet of strawberry pastilles, raspberry and light rose petal aromas, quite pure and complex, deserving of this excellent Premier Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, beautiful pure cranberry and raspberry fruit and real race and vigor toward the structured finish.
Rounded and generous. Spicy, more obviously oaky. Deep and chewy and fresh. Firmly structured but with ripe fruit at the core.
