Chewy intensely flavored and fairly deep but rather tight following the bottling. As usual for this estate in a rather claret-like style without the obvious surmaturite of some Chateauneufs. Firm acidity and sweet fine tannins give this wine the backbone to age slowly. Finishes with subtle persistence.
