I called it "unevolved looking" 4 years ago and so it remained tonight. Some ripe black cherry and pine needle with development of secondary aromatics with air. Medium weight, good sappy core and a little bit of spice, but not that complex and certainly without the extra dimension or cut that one expects of a Grand Cru with this amount of bottle age. A pleasant but ultimately simple drink.
Shockingly unevolved looking. Pungent, brambly fruit gave way to black cherry essence, Gevrey earth and iron, and a touch of licorice. Ripe fruit, chocolate, and rather full bodied, but remains crisp and focused due to vibrant acids. Not a tad of 1990 overripeness. Youthful, complex, and overall, astonishingly good, much more than I expected of the producer and vintage.
diep rood, mooie rijpe neus, rood fruit met een mooie animale boerse toon, smaak is zacht en verleidelijk, nog zeer goed in vorm, diepgang , heeft ook wel wat kracht, wijn is nu prachtig drinkbaar. geduld word beloond
Terrific bouquet of strawberries and flowers. Brick red color. Initially, a floral, cherry flavor followed by earthiness and some leathery/barnyard notes. There's also a sweetness that doesn't seem to balance well with the leather aspects. Haven't had this producer before, so I don't know the style or if this was an off bottle, but I didn't really enjoy this as much as I had hoped.
