A very generously wooded nose that is again right at the limit of what I find intrusive to the transparency of the aromas frames ripe pear and high-toned floral notes that serve to introduce rich full powerful and mouth coating flavors blessed with an impressive amount of dry extract all wrapped in a classy finish. As noted there is more wood than I can warm up to but this is clearly well made and offers solid potential. Drink: 2010+

($150) Dried fruits hazelnut and toasty oak on the nose plus a whiff of caramelized banana. Powerful and tightly wound with surprising acidity enlivening the flavors of peach citrus peel spices and minerals. This has terrific cut and persistence but will need a good six or seven years of cellaring. Martin Prieur compares this to the 2002 Combettes in aging potential and notes that this cuvee from a large holding of 1.49 hectares is becoming the estate's calling card.
