...sublime. Mingling aromas of wild berries and bergamot with notions of rose petals, exotic spices, violets, clove and cinnamon...full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a multidimensional palate of breathtaking plenitude. Elegantly muscular, this is a vibrant, pristinely balanced wine that concludes with a long, resonant finish.
There is superb detail to the muscular big-bodied flavors that brim with both minerality and dry extract before culminating in an explosively long, balanced, youthfully austere and harmonious finish. This is sleek, classy and powerful plus it is packed with development potential though a wine that’s going to require many decades to fully resolve the very firm lashing to supporting tannins.
...bouquet is beautifully-defined, broody and introspective at first...after 10 minutes it becomes highly perfumed with potpourri and rose petals, dark berry fruit...medium-bodied, extraordinarily well-defined and pure...a touch more spice...a pinch of white pepper lingers on the tongue for a minute after the wine has exited.
...savoury than usual on the nose...on the palate it’s so rich you could so easily drink it tonight! Such a seductive wine… Utterly sensual in terms of ripe fruit and length. Rich and perfumed. Just absolutely what we all seek in a red burgundy: rich fruit and yet delicate.
