Energetic and vibran...sizzles with all of the energy of this cool, late-ripening vintage. Time in the glass brings out all of the savory and mineral intensity that is such a signature of the Blankiet wines these days.
...notes of black and blue fruits, graphite, crushed stone, smoked tobacco, and a hint of violets...flawlessly balanced, and has ample structure as well as a great finish.
...chocolate-covered cherries, crushed black currants, warm plums and mulberries with touches of camphor, iron ore, forest floor and black truffles. The medium-bodied palate is as elegant as it is intense, offering electric black fruit and earthy layers with loads of mineral sparks and a fine-grained frame, finishing with great length and compelling restraint.
