Popped and poured. Ripe dark red plum and cherry on both the nose and palate. Some sweet baking spice too. Notes of violet, earth and crushed rock as well. Lots of concentration and purity of fruit on the palate. Great texture with a lengthy, balanced finish. Quite forward and giving now, but easily will last awhile.
Opened and poured, the wine began polished and expressive. Airing brings out darker fruits; however, the wine turns stern and structured. The wine does give an excellent showing and based on this bottle, suggests that it will benefit from at least two to three years of additional bottle age.
Domaine Tasting at Comte Lafon: From barrel. Ripe, concentrated darker red cherry and plum on the nose with delicate floral notes as well. Great intensity of fruit on the palate too with great balance. Delicious.
