Vinous – 89
(made from mostly younger vines in the Clos de la Marechale) Bright dark red. Currant, bitter chocolate, fresh herbs and a whiff of flowers on the nose. Juicy, spicy black fruit flavors show a creamy sweetness in the context of the vintage. Finishes with fine-grained tannins that build in the glass.
Burghound – 89
(Outstanding) A slight herbal note adds nuance to the equally ripe, pure and complex nose that combines notes of dark berry fruit, violet, earth and a whiff of the sauvage that carries over to the rich, textured and round middle weight flavors supported by slightly chewy tannins that are not especially elegant but neither are they rustic. A fine villages.
