Densely packed and folded in on itself; like a black hole in the mouth. Great verve and energy to the saline and crushed stone flavors. Uncoils slowly with aeration with the finish displaying almost painful intensity and terrific mounting floral length. A great soil-driven Latricieres in the making.

Note: from a very large 1.21 ha parcel; vinified with <15% whole clusters. This offers up a completely different aromatic profile than that of the Mazis with its extremely cool restrained and ultra-elegant nose of a broad range of wild red berry fruits stone floral notes and spice hints. There is exceptionally good purity and transparency to the intensely mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that evidence ample power on the impeccably well-balanced and linear finish. This is a really lovely effort that embodies that ineffable quality of power without weight. - Comments: Don't miss!
