A spicy, fresh and highly restrained nose offers up aromas of both red and dark berry fruit, earth, sandalwood and a touch of the sauvage. There is the same fine complexity to the detailed, punchy, powerful and gorgeously textured flavors that possess imposing size and weight yet the finish is a model of grace, balance and refinement. This is not particularly austere but it is going to require extended cellaring before it is ready so I would advise buying this only if you have the patience to cellar it for at least 12 years and more would be better.
|Score: 93/96||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (53), January 2014|
Bright medium red. Multidimensional nose offers scents of raspberry, cherry, exotic spices, rose petal and dried flowers. Compellingly chewy and sappy on the palate yet somehow silky too, showing outstanding energy and lift to its lightly saline flavors of dark fruits, blood orange, minerals and licorice. Finishes with a serious tannic spine and terrific lift and length. A complete young grand cru Burgundy with extract to burn. 2025 - 2042
