Off the charts. Off the hook. Crushes the scale. Words cannot quite express how stunning this wine is! It perfectly blends intensity, concentration, depth, opulence, decadence and freshness. The nose, with its intoxicating perfume of licorice, black cherry liqueur, flowers, espresso, pepper, kirsch and earth is heaven. But it's the full bodied, voluptuous, liquid silk, mouth feel that lives for at least 60 seconds that seals the deal. Opened in the name of science by a friend, I'm not going to touch any of my few precious bottles for at least a decade.
Decanted and drank over 7 hours. The nose remained somewhat closed but overall reveal huge and ripe dark fruit, loads of wet stone, coffee and chocolate. The palate was more expressive and while quite primary was tasty. Long, dense and deep finish. Needs time and not as approachable as the La Mouline as expected.
Ett helt underbart vin! Doft med hallon, lite rökig chark, örter, kamomill, nymald vitpeppar, lite svarta vinbär och en otroligt intensiv men elegant smak som bara fortsätter och fortsätter. Helt enkelt jäkligt gott!!!
