Flat-out gorgeous. Waves of blue/purplish fruit hit the palate in an intense, explosive Burgundy loaded with pure class and pedigree....impresses for its richness, power and depth.
The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, more linear than its peers, the acidity pitched higher, but that just lends tension and race on the finish. The aftertaste is long with plenty of spicy black fruit and blackcurrant pastilles.
Discreet wood sets off ultra-fresh and airy aromas of red currant, blue berries and plum …. hints of wet stone and earth... wonderfully refined mouth feel to the mineral-tinged middle weight flavors that possess an appealing verve
Good savoury undertow. But little muted. Subtle.
