Tight pretty much through the entire evening but showed glimpses of what this will eventually reveal with time; very evident oak at present with oak spices mixed with Vosne spices, clove, smoke, incense and fleeting brown baking spices mixed with deep, dark cherry fruits that show urgency but lack focus today. Gentle wisps of spices and rose petal come out more with time and on the palate with candied licorice on top of a very rich and long palate. This shows nice dense fruit on the palate that should develop a lot more with time. Tight and showing a bit more oak than preferred but there is plenty of raw material to absorb it going forward. Solid Beaux Monts in the making. 91-92 points
