It has a focused, conservative (for the vintage) nose with gravel-tinged red berry fruit intermingling with cedar, graphite and pine needle scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm structure and unlike the bottle tasted in January, which I declined to score, there is no green streak on the finish. It is very backward and some might describe it as curmudgeonly. Personally I would not touch it for another five years, even though apparently it is beginning to open according to Henri Lurton. No, I would afford it another two or three years in bottle and let's see where we are then. Tasted April 2015. - Neal Martin

Nice dark violet with purple edges. Warmer vanilla and toasted cherry on the nose with herbaceous rhubarb and raspberry hints. Sweet tannins on the front of the palate with raspberry blueberry and sweet tea notes. Well... Nice dark violet with purple edges.
