Spicy dark cherry menthol nose. On the palate, there is dark stone fruit, austere Gevrey earth, requisite acid, and sawdust. This is in a good place now. Not particularly complex but certainly quite Gevrey in character.
Bought on release. ½ bottle, splash decant, at cellar temperature. Very intense nose of petroleum, raspberry and smoke. On the palate, nice balance with moderate fruit and strong tannins. Can taste the granite-like a light Cote Rotie. Over the next hour, the nose mellows somewhat, but the palate integrates. Becomes very smooth and long for a village wine. Excellent value and highly recommended. Alas my only bottle.
