Tasting Notes

An expressive, ripe and airy nose features relatively primary essence of red cherry, baked plum, cassis, pomegranate and earth notes. The succulent middle weight flavors possess obvious muscle along with plenty of minerality on the attractively complex, dusty, palate coating and impressively long finish. This isn't much on refinement but one can't complain about the concentration to its potential longevity.

Score: 91

Allen Meadows, Burghound Maturity: 2027+ 15 January 2018

Bright, full medium red. Very ripe aromas of cherry and strawberry. Then surprisingly sappy and stylish on the palate, displaying lovely finesse of texture without any undue weight. Wonderfully broad and deep for premier cru, but with spicy high notes contributing to the wine's impression of definition and its light touch; there's also an element of medicinal reserve that I did not find in the Millandes. Best today on the very long finish, which features noble, fine-grained tannins and terrific rising perfume. I'm not sure I would have picked this blind as a 2015, in spite of the almost candied ripeness shown by the nose.

Score: 93
