Good deep red. Penetrating aromas of dark raspberry, violet and spices. Suave and rich, with a mineral pungency giving the mid-palate a perfumed character. Builds slowly toward the back, finishing with substantial broad tannins and lovely lingering spicy persistence. Wonderfully rich without coming off as heavy, in the style of this premier cru. But this very young wine is a bit inexpressive and tannic today and will require at least five or six years of patience.
