Tasting Notes

Most of the oak this displayed from barrel has now been successfully integrated on the restrained, cool, pure and layered nose of black cherry, cassis, warm earth and an impressive array of sauvage and underbrush notes. There is moderately good richness to the overtly powerful and muscular flavors that possess an imposing sense of scale that continues onto the textured and mouth coating finish that is long, tannic and very Corton in character. Like the 2015 version, this is an old school effort that is presently evolving glacially though with that said this is not as austere as it easily could be given the 2013 vintage. Drink 2028+.

Score: 93Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, May 2018

A generous dollop of moderately toasty oak mixes with the highly layered nose of black cherry, cassis, warm earth and an impressive array of sauvage and underbrush notes. There is excellent richness to the overtly powerful and muscular flavors that possess an imposing sense of scale that continues onto the textured and mouth coating finish. Like several of the wines in the range in 2013 this is a big but not really massive wine that retains a sense of proportion even though the underlying structure is quite firm. This will need plenty of patience however.
