Initially this is bright on the nose as well as good acidity on taste. Cranberry notes mixed with the beginnings of the tertiary notes of sous-bois. After 2-3 hours this continually changed. I doubted its Grand Cru provenance until it started evolving. In the end a complex nose of black raspberry, kirsch, cardamon, and coffee in a subtle but elegant dance. It takes time for this to come out. The taste is bright with good acidity: blackberry, black raspberry flavors that open up on the palate with good intensity. Finish not as long as I would like but decent intensity. Tannins still have a bit to go so this will continue to last for a bit. Very elegant subtle wine.
Mature black fruit aromas with modest background spice. Similarly mature black cherry on palate, ok spice. Again advanced on palate, slightly more than most 2000s, giving it an ever-so-slightly muddy finish. Drink up.
Really lovely; very powerful and primary at first with deep black cherry fruit, savoury earthy notes and touches of wood in the background - but with time it eases out a bit, becoming more floral and spicy with time as the aromatics expand.
