Fascinating aromas of dried strawberries, dried meat, spices and dried rose petals. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy, savory finish. Polished tannins. Pretty length. Drink or hold.

Ample toasty oak frames the black cherry and plum flavors here. Spice and vegetal notes intertwine as this unfolds on the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. – BS

Also more airy in the mouth, with a very fine-grained texture... Healthy medium red. Deep nose displays red and darker berries accented by spices, minerals and flowers; ultimately a bit blacker in character than the Grèves. Also more airy in the mouth, with a very fine-grained texture and harmonious acidity that makes the Grèves seem almost heavy by comparison. Lovely subtle inner-mouth perfume here. Finishes with nicely delineated fruit and spice notes, lively tannins and saliva-inducing minerality. -- Stephen Tanzer
