Once again reduction largely dominates the nose though discreet floral nuances are perceptible. There is excellent size, weight and concentration to the overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that helps to buffer the considerable tannic spine shaping the youthfully austere, serious and built-to-age finale. In a word, impressive.

Deep crimson. Not an intense nose but a very promisingly subtle one that’s already showing many a nuance. Great balance and suavity on the palate. Truly grand cru stuff with taffeta texture and a great spread of ripe fruit across the palate. Refined and really rather majestic.
