This has developed well since I last tried one two years ago. The aromas and flavours are much the same, but the rusticity is less evident and the wine has acquired a certain sheen. It hasn't quite got the fruit and depth to compare with other vintages, but this is still a good example of La Tour DHM and at 5€, I'm more than satisfied.
Dark colour, with aromas which remind me of Christmas cake. Rich and onctuous in the mouth, with plums, blackcurrants with a dash of spice and sultanas. There is a pleasing freshness mid-palate, but perhaps slightly rustic at this stage. Not at it best yet, it will improve further over the next five years. A little more elegance would have been welcome, but this is stupendous value.
