Quite impressive. Sweet red plums on the juicy and fresh palate. Tannins emerge with air, and they are both tart and sweet tannins, somehow. Notes of game on the palate along with the fruit. There is a pleasing, juicy sweetness to the fruit, along with touches of smoke and tobacco. Really quite nice. No degradation over night.
From memory. Palish red. Overall, the wine was pretty closed on the first night. I opened it for guests who like wine and then ended up directing them to other open bottles. The wine really started to show itself on day 2. Aromas of minerals, mint and red fruit. Sweet and supple on the palate with smoke earth and good minimally coarse red fruit. I love this domaine.
