("these vines are 65 years old, like me," noted Philippe Livera, adding that a small percentage of them actually date back to the 1920s; aged in 60% new oak): Bright, dark ruby-red. Dark aromas of black cherry, blueberry, blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate convey a liqueur-like ripeness. A compellingly plush, thick, refined wine with terrific energy and focus. The dark fruit flavors are enlivened by sexy soil tones and pungent minerality. Really blossomed in the glass with aeration, finishing with noble tannins and terrific building length. This fruit was picked at 13.5% and chaptalized to 14.5% but the alcohol does not stand out. Livera says he'd wait eight to ten years before drinking this, and it certainly appears to possess bulletproof fruit. Consider me impressed.
