Brooding aromas of crushed blackberry, kirsch, violet and licorice. Sweet on entry, then concentrated and lively, with ripe, integrated acidity framing the crushed black fruit flavors. This fruit bomb really spreads out to saturate the palate. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and lovely energy. Its slightly high-toned quality gives it immediate appeal and lift, but it also has the balance to offer pleasure over the next seven or eight years. An outperformer in this vintage.

Unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage, the opaque plum/ruby/purple-tinged 2008 d'Aiguilhe reveals abundant notes of licorice, fruitcake, black currants and kirsch, sweet tannin, a round, generous texture and impressive purity as well as length. It should be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years.

This lush, expressive red is rich with ripe fruit flavors of blackberry and cassis, framed with coffee bean and dark chocolate. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and juicy acidity keeps the wine fresh and bright through the spicy finish. Best from 2012 through 2020.-T.M.
