One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted it verges on being port-like but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus. The wine is massively concentrated still black/purple-hued... One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted it verges on being port-like but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus. The wine is massively concentrated still black/purple-hued to the rim and offers a nose of incense blackberries blueberry liqueur acacia flowers and forest floor. It reveals low acidity and high tannins which are largely concealed by the sheer concentration and lavish glycerin the wine possesses. Aging at a glacial pace it is approachable but it will not hit its peak until 2020; it should last for twenty years thereafter.
