It appears to be one of the finest wines made by Daniel Brunier and his brother. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by a superb nose of nori seaweed wrappers licorice pepper tobacco leaf and gobs of sweet black cherry and black currant fruit. Full-bodied with a fabulous texture purity and freshness (a consistent hallmark of this vintage) a juicy rich layered mouthfeel and a finish that lasts for 45+ seconds. Although young the tannin acidity and alcohol are all well-integrated. Typically this wine tends to be dormant for 3-5 years after bottling then emerge brilliantly. Therefore I would wait until 2012 before pulling a cork on this one. Drink it over the following 20-25 years.

Packed in a brawny muscular style atypical for this lush vintage with a gravelly undertow to the currant paste braised fig and dark licorice notes. Picks up even more steam on the finish with grilled mesquite mineral and garrigue notes and a long hot stone¿filled finish. Best from 2010 through 2030. 17000 cases made. -JM
