A mix of elegance and power, the aromas should open up in a few years and more complexity emerge on the palate. Fine iron-tinged length. Best from 2024 through 2045. 570 cases made, 75 cases imported. — BS

The textured, lush and seductive big-bodied flavors possess ample mid-palate concentration before terminating in a muscular, youthfully austere and powerful finish where a hint of bitter cherry arises.

The bunches were very healthy, and nearly 70% of the grapes were fermented as whole clusters after a five-day cold soak before fermentation. Extraction was very gentle, with no pigeage, simply a gentle pumping over of the juice. The result has abundant aromas of ripe blackberry and plum fruit, still marked by the 18-month maturation in cask, 35% new. The overwhelming sensation is one of sweet black fruit buttressed by generous alcohol and abundant, silky tannins on the palate. (Drink between 2024-2039)

Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with a broad attack and an ample core of fruit, it's a little shy after its recent bottling despite the fact that in profile this is a rather supple, charming interpretation of this site. - WK

Containing 65% whole-bunch fruit, it has a stemmy, almost Dujac-like bouquet that feels well defined albeit not to everyone’s taste. The well-balanced, medium-bodied palate offers fine-grained tannin, a fine line of acidity and dark cherries mixed with truffle and cedar toward the precise if not overly concentrated finish. Fine. -- Neal Martin
