(14+% alcohol) Good deep red. Reticent, pure aromas of dark fruits, minerals and flowers. Superripe, suave and minerally, with a penetrating quality to the flavors of black cherry and currant. Hints at the peppery, herbal quality of the year but finishes very long, with fine tannins. In contrast to the estate’s Echezeaux holding, this parcel is in a protected, very warm spot.
