Bright red-ruby. Highly nuanced, extremely ripe aromas of red raspberry, espresso, earth and underbrush. Wonderfully suave on entry, then rich and vibrant in the middle palate, with sharply delineated flavors of raspberry, strawberry, iron and minerals. This has energy in the mouth. Finishes extremely subtle and long, with fine tannins and lovely restrained sweetness. Along with the Clos de la Roche, this is a monument of the vintage.
