Robert Parker 96
The 2010 has a very perfumed bouquet with succulent red-berry fruit infused with rose petals, then a touch of pomegranate and limestone. Very fine delineation, the new oak seamlessly enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with great tension: wonderful poise and clarity with a balletic finish. The difference between the quality of this and the wines ten years ago is astonishing.
Real class bounds out of the glass here. You get the impression that you could do virtually anything in the cellar and this would still shine. Lovely freshness yet concentration and subtlety too. Great stuff! Sinewy.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030
