Opened with the Tokyo gang shortly after flying in. No decanter and likely a bit jet lagged. Not surprisingly, it has a reticent, restrained nose, hinting at dark red and blue fruits with some but limited floral notes. Fairly powerful in the mouth, rich rather than silky, again darker fruit predominates; clearly this is still in its primary stage but it is not at all monolithic at this very young age. I felt there are layers and layers waiting to unfold. All agreed it has the structure and the fruit to evolve into a very good wine, perhaps a great village level wine. Will wait a few years before checking in again but so far I am pleased with this wine's development.
Delivers the goods as expected - at peak now. Lovely nose of black cherry and violets. Very smooth tannins, good acidity and balance on the palate. A round yet somewhat masculine interpretation of Chambolle.
