Packaged in a distinctive Italian glass bottle this inky/purple-colored 2010 exhibits notes of blueberries charcoal roasted herbs and scorched earth. The complex aromas are followed by a full-bodied super intense young unevolved wine that was bottled April 26 2012 but still resembles a barrel sample. As the wine sits in the glass aromas of blueberries licorice and graphite emerge. While the tannins are sweet they are abundant. This remarkable effort came from one 300-liter foudre. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink it over the following 3 decades. By the way it is about 16% natural alcohol so it is actually less powerful than the 2011. Kudos to Manfred Krankl Pascal and Vincent Maurel and Philippe Cambie for this remarkable effort.
