Tasting Notes

A pretty mix of red currant, plum and discreet sauvage hints merges into precise yet velvety medium-bodied flavors that evidence an overt austerity on the linear and moderately long finish. I let this air for 24 hours which helped considerably because upon opening this was tight and borderline tough. The change due to the aeration suggests that this will become more civilized as it ages but at present this is not especially easy going. Note: .33 ha of 40+ year old vines

Score: 91Allen Meadows, (46), April 2012

(from vines planted before WWII): Good bright red. Tight, pure nose exudes scents of dark cherry, bitter chocolate, violet and licorice. Juicy, precise and savory but more reticent and backward today, and less pliant, than the Estournelles. In a distinctly cool, almost severe style, currently dominated by its structure.
