Opened as a pop and pour, but didn't decant. Needs a couple of hours to open up and the fruit really integrates nicely with the minerals, botanicals and tobacco when it's open. It's truly a baby CdP!! I'm rating this wine a 91 on absolute quality, but on QPR this wine is hard to even challenge let alone beat.
