Rhubarb, a gentle smooch of green, black pepper and dusty cherry also resonate on the palate. Definitely pleasuarable now, there is some structure. Id say peak is 5 years if you like mature burgs. Fruithounds need not apply.
Drinking very well now. Nice fruit, in good balance, secondary notes coming up on nose and palate. Not profound, but simple and very pleasant with a nice clean finish. Drink up or hold for a year, but seems unlikely to improve significantly with further age.
My last, and my favorite bottle of this wine. The green vegetal notes that I've found off putting in the past have evolved into earthy floral notes that add interesting nuance to the clean dark fruit, earth and minerality. The finish is of medium lenght. All in all, quite nice and still abit on the youngish side.
This is lovely, and still improving. Dark red fruit and a very precise, bright, mineral line. Similar on nose and palate. Quite long, silky texture, pin-point. A third of the bottle left in the fridge overnight has put on weight, the texture is slightly more velvety, the fruit broader and fuller it's lost some of its precision, but this is clearly still on the up. Ile de V is a serious vineyard. ****
