Similar to the previous two vintages, it comes from the lieu-dit "Les Rugiens-Bas." It has a complex and inviting bouquet with black cherries, crushed rose petals and undergrowth aromas, just a suggestion of dried blood emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied, the 40% new oak is absorbed by the fleshy red fruit, and it is adorned with a lovely, ferrous finish. Drink over the next 15 or 20 years.

There is first-rate punch to the delineated, muscular and mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that terminate in a saline, youthfully austere and impressively persistent finish. Patience will clearly be essential as this will need time.

The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red berry fruit, and grippy tannins. The creamy texture on the finish just feels a bit otiose. Hopefully it will gain more elegance with continued bottled age. Gutsy. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. -- Neal Martin
