What a beautiful wine! Healthy garnet colored with an expressive, feminine and complex nose which at the moment is at an optimum stage of development. Bouquet includes chocolate, cedar, ink, black berry fruit, floral notes and a tiny whiff of leather. On the palate it is on the lean side, at most medium bodied, with low level of tannins and medium acidity. Has a nice bitter cedary aftertaste. A miniature of the Grand Vin but so enjoyable! Can keep for at least five more years.
Outperformed versus most of the tasting notes here. Beautiful deep red in the decanter (2 hours). Rich, fruity taste. Very together, tannins integrated and silky smooth. Great length. Drinking through 2020 though can't see it getting any better than this.
