A very pretty and ultra-fresh nose offers up airy, cool and elegant liqueur-like aromas of essence of red cherry that are cut with a plenitude of floral, spice and earth nuances that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The mouthfeel of the medium-bodied, tautly muscular and even more mineral-driven flavors is relatively refined while delivering superb length on the almost painfully intense and beautifully delineated finish. This is also built-to-age but as is usually the case, this is a combination of finesse and punch where it will mature on balance. This too is textbook. Drink: 2037+

Real richness on the nose. ‘This one is happy today’, notes Cyrielle Rousseau. Rich and open with dark fruits and just a tiny hint of peppery floral character. Utterly fragrant without being showy. So fine while still firm, so supple, so at ease. A happy wine even now. 2025 - 2040
