Dreamer no 2: Un nez moderne, coconut, un coté wild (un peu de volatile?) Difficile de passer après les Bourgogne parfumés mais il s'en tire grâce à sa très belle texture, c'est frais et équilibré, savoureux, long et digeste. Un vin sauvage civilisé. Il perd quelques points pour le nez trop moderne à mon goût. 93 pts
What a wine, will probably surpass the much praised 94. Early window of maturity but by no means there yet. Decanted and aerated for about 90 minutes and drank over another two hours. Opulence and finesse intermingled with complexity and power. Beautiful ruby color with slight bricking at the rim. Flabbergasting nose of ripe blackberries, blueberries, tinged with cocoa, cinnamon, jasmine, even cola and a bit of alcohol. This is a viscous dense wine with amazing legs, very complex and fat entry on the palate, multiple layers mid palate with all the different tones excellently balanced between black and blue fruits, spices, ripeness, intensity, backbone, acidity, like a flawless orchestra performing a Beethoven symphony. Outstanding long rich finish with silky tannins and mocha. I can only see this wine getting better and more complex. One of my favorite Vegas.
Septet wine-lovers 1st meeting in 2014 (Makom shel Basar restaurant, Neveh Tsedek, TLV): dark red-brown color excellent secondary & tertiary earthy fruity aromas full body, silky tannins, savory flavors, optimal level of tannins & bitterness, balanced acidity, rich, opulence, complex, close to perfect, a real experience. Long aftertaste. A masterpiece of Ribera del Duero. (after over two hours the wine started to fade out in the glass)
