A big full-bodied fleshy effort it exhibits abundant black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with a dusty loamy soil/sandy note in the background. A much larger wine than I have tasted in the past it will be fascinating to follow the evolution of this 2010 (as well as Rouget's 2009) given the intensity power and richness. It should drink well for 12-18 years.

A solid core of fruit here that is tight and dense. You have to look below the surface and find its true quality. Impressive structure and style.

Dark core with scarlet rim, on the nose smoky red and black fruits, Kirschwasser , on the palate , stewed plums and spices, Morello cherries, scorched earth, medium to full bodied, fairly silky and velvety, some terrior... Dark core with scarlet rim, on the nose smoky red and black fruits, Kirschwasser , on the palate , stewed plums and spices, Morello cherries, scorched earth, medium to full bodied, fairly silky and velvety, some terrior, a bit modern, comes on a bit strong, but has some lift on the lingering finish. Should come to form within 2-5 years, and drink well for a dozen or more years.

Difficult to evaluate on the nose - this sample may not have been quite ready to show. It seemed disjointed with awkward apple raisin and earth aromas and very primary grapey flavors. Texturally this wine seemed fine with... Difficult to evaluate on the nose - this sample may not have been quite ready to show. It seemed disjointed with awkward apple raisin and earth aromas and very primary grapey flavors. Texturally this wine seemed fine with a nice luscious silkiness. Underwhelming considering the great wines this property has made in the recent past. Judgment reserved.
