...a whip-cracking bouquet... Red cherries, freshly picked raspberries, wilted rose petal and very light loamy scents soar from the glass...medium-bodied with fine tannins, stunningly vibrant red berry fruit, hints of tobacco and graphite that percolate through with time in the glass. It fans out gloriously towards the finish. Awesome length.
...breathtaking aromas of raspberries and strawberries mingled with bergamot, Indian spices, peonies and rose petals. Full-bodied, vibrant and perfumed...with a bright spine of acidity and beautifully refined tannins, concluding with a long, penetrating finish. Striking for its purity and elegance, my handwritten notes include the phrase "pure sensuality."
There is unusually good volume and punch to the lavishly rich, even opulent, medium weight plus flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract on the highly energetic and very powerful finish.
Intensely perfumed. Dramatic! More red-cherry flavours, plus Vosne savour. Such energy... Particularly fine, sandy tannins. Really quite delicate on the end. Quite flashy for a DRC wine. Firm and yet very fine-boned.
