I have opened several bottles of this vintage over the past year -- in line with the tastings notes by others, I've experienced quite a bit of bottle variation in the 4 bottles I've tasted. The bottles have ranged from delicious (like this current bottle) to searing acidity with a lingering chalky, cotton-mouth aftertaste with zero dimension of fruit (that bottle was returned as flawed). Today's bottle is superb - opened with Coravin - on day 2 tasting: leafy, sanguine, gamey, ripe fruit, smoke, cocoa , balanced acidity, moderate lingering tannins, sediment that can't be avoided with Coravin - still delicious and complex. Day 1 tasting seemed more closed -- so decanting in advance would optimize the wine. I think you could drink this over another 3-5 yrs. 92+
