Really hitting stride - secondary notes of truffle, earth and spice are rounded out with dried currants/cassis notes. Great acidity to balance the soft and round tannins. wish I had more than just a few bottles!
What a great bottle. A powerful and perfumed nose (very seductive), with a surprisingly delicate palate. All the classic Rhone notes and a perfect balance. It feels ready to drink, and I doubt further age will improve it.
Tasted at the domaine. 17 hl / ha. Smoked meat on the nose, with perfumey licorice, dark fruit. Expressive. On the palate, finely detailed flavors of smoked meat. Very nice now, could age another 10+, IMO.
