Black cherry, licorice and a whiff of game on the brooding nose. Sweet, saline and densely packed but a baby today, with subtle dark fruit and game flavors currently cut off by chewy, slightly tough tannins. Quite unevolved right now. (ST92-90)

An elegant, cool and pure nose features notes of wild red berries, pungent earth and a sauvage note. There is an equally cool impression to the medium weight plus flavors that exude a fine minerality on the delicious, intense and naturally austere finish. In 2012 this is a muscular, even robust wine but not necessarily rustic. (BH92-90)

The dark red 'Combe Aux Moines' is fantastic in this vintage. Rich and potent notes of red fruit layered with spice and complex earth tones. The palate showcases candied watermelon, apple skin and rich spices. ... The dark red 'Combe Aux Moines' is fantastic in this vintage. Rich and potent notes of red fruit layered with spice and complex earth tones. The palate showcases candied watermelon, apple skin and rich spices. There is a refreshing and clear level of acidity on the mid palate leading to a long and inviting finish. This will benefit from years in the cellar, but with a good decant it can be delightful today. After tasting the 1935, this wine will last for generations.
