Rich intense and profound it has an almost Syrah-like flavor profile of black raspberries cherries and blackberries. Elegant yet powerful this superb effort lingers on the palate for almost a minute. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2019. Note: The information on acidification reported in the article on Maison Lucien Le Moine's Cote de Beaunes was incorrect according to director/winemaker Mounir Saouma. This negociant firm did not acidify any of its acquired wines stresses Saouma the figures quoted in my earlier article were his assessments of â_otypicalâ__ 2003s.Various importers including: Vintus Pleasantville NY; tel.

Multidimensional nose offers raspberry blackberry violet dried flowers roasted herbs brown spices and humus. Thick on entry then almost painfully intense in the middle with great energy for a wine with so much volume. The blackberry and mineral flavors really spread out horizontally on the back and cling to the palate. A superb expression of this grand cru with excellent balance for this extreme year.

Nonetheless there's plenty of fruit chocolate and mineral tones. This is a powerful burly red that needs time. Best from 2009 through 2025. 100 cases made. –BS
