An integrated and balanced bottle. Dark fruit, earth and herbs, spicy. Balanced with food. Nothing over the top, does not show its alcohol. At the very end of the bottle a few raisiny notes emerged, but this was excellent and with age might well improve.
Beautiful bouquet with ripe fruits and good garrigue. On the palate juicy dark berry fruits, plums, herbs and spices and some tobacco. A beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness and although the round tannin still has some bite, the wine is more developed than Beaucastel tasted just before this one. According to a person who really knows this wine well this bottle is not representative. Anyway, I liked it and scored it 94.
