12.5% - Clear, med to light ruby / clean, med- intensity - redcurrant, dry leaves, gamey, nutty / dry, med+ acidity (a little bit astringent), med to light body, low grainy tannins, med to low intensity, med- length. Quite austere, some anise notes. First impression: that doesn't meet the expectations of a 1er cru level... but will see what the next hour reserves... (86)
On day 2: this one just needed some patience and time to breathe, it remained intense on the earthy notes and game meat, the acidity became refreshing rather than astringent and the length (med+) was quite surprising on the palate in comparison to last night. Finally, that one ends up being a good QP and I'm just glad that I haven't finished the bottle on day 1. I guess timing is everything... (88+)
