Very pretty (quality sweet oak imparted) bouquet for a Moulis-en-Médoc offering, which are typically quite rustic and earthy. Smooth and polished, arguably excessively so, yet still highly enjoyable. Time will reveal whether this wine sheds is fluff and reveals its rustic core or retains is modernly styled polish. Glad to have another bottle. In this vintage, I prefer Chateau Poujeaux. 90-92.
Opaque ruby/purple color turning rust at the rim with a transparent edge. The nose is quite dense at the onset, which requires a bit of aeration time to open up notes of dark fruits, damp garage, wet forest floor, leather, scorched oak and vanilla. The palate is dry; fleshy in texture; with a structure built for medium-term cellaring. Flavors of black currant, dark cherry, licorice, eucalyptus menthol, dark chocolate, espresso, meat and tobacco form the core. Finishes attractively with supple notes of vanilla bean, toffee, and dried herbs. Drink now with a 20-minute decant until 2025.
Still too young, nothing much to say except: what a disappointment. Doesn't fit into my wine collection due to quality under par. Can't understand why people his wine receives good reviews, must be the name
