This is a big burly Volnay. Decanter must have received a rigged sample or this thing has seriously shut down. Dense, medicinal, sappy, and tannic. Definitely needs time to settle down and integrate - I'm thinking 2020. Behind the dense fruit and tannins there are some nice lifted red fruit flavors on the nose and palate, but you have to work to find them. Based on the Decanter tasting I was going to buy more. Glad I tried a bottle first, as I'm not sure how this one will turn out.
Dark dark mass. Black hole-ish color. Scent of blueberries, raw power, one dimensional and a bit alcoholic.
Unbelievable power and concentration. An uppercut of a wine with big, powerful yet integrated tannins, Looking forward to see how this wine calms down after 10 years in the cellar, because it's going to need it!
