Good bright, full red. Brooding aromas of medicinal blueberry and menthol lifted by brilliant high notes of rose petal, mace and minerals. Compellingly deep and young, even youthfully imploded today, but this already boasts brilliant detail and energy and an exhilarating high pitch. Penetrating, powerful blue fruits, graphite, flowers and minerals stain the palate with flavor and will not quit. A great Bonnes-Mares for the Musigny lover. Should gain in bottle for two decades and go on for another two.
Mid crimson. Sweet and rich on the nose. Ripe cherry fruit with a firm sandpaper finish. Meaty and solid and convincing. Very good terroir expression. Bone dry finish but crackling energy.
Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028
