Friday, December 18, 2009 - Oinofiloi Wine Club Christmas Tasting.
I have no words to describe this wine. Simply majestic.
Very dark ruby-purple. Knock-out nose with dark chocolate, coffee, violets, dark cherries, nobel animal notes...so complex, out of this world.
Full-bodied with firm but juicy tanins, huge, multi-layered fruit, minerality and high acidity. Great structure, depth and texture. Very long finish.
An unbelievable wine. Surprisingly approachable already, but with great aging potential. W.O.T.N. easily. Made the DRC Grands-Echezaux that followed seem like an ordinary Pinot Noir!
