With an incredible seamlessness, full body, awesome tannins, and a great finish, it's going to shine for two decades.

The full-bodied palate is relatively restrained with loads of savory layers superbly framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and mineral tinged.- LPB

Reduced slightly, it brims in graphite, earth and dried herb, with classically stylized secondary layers of cassis, lavender, anise and oak. The texture is sublime. Lovely now, this will do well over time; enjoy best from 2026–2036. VIRGINIE BOONE

Solid, with a gutsy edge to the mix of juicy black currant and blackberry compote flavors, inlaid with charcoal, bay leaf and tobacco accents. Dark but racy through the finish, revealing a smoldering hint.

Dark but racy through the finish, revealing a smoldering hint. Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2028. 411 cases made. — JM
