Well done. Full and Balanced. Integration is impeccable. Midpalate is velvety and well rounded. Nose is full of plum, blackberry, spice and garrigue. Great finish that lingers for at least a minute. This should develop nicely for at least 5 more years. Well done.
Round rich great richness. Herbs de provance are noticeable. Plum, fig sauce, Blackberry, currant and orange peel are all very well balanced against the classic CDP lash of old vine earth and minerality
Bdx and Pizza (1201 Avenue B): Damn good CdP. Spice and pepper dominate the nose with a some garrigue and kirsch. Palate is focused and fine, but has a great expression of red fruits—cassis, cherry, licorice, great acidity adding life and energy and prominent slightly coarse tannins. Lengthy mocha and red/violet fruit driven finish. Fantastic CdP.
