Tasting Notes

Bright medium red. Lovely high-toned aromas of currant, dried flowers, stone, tobacco, leather and earth. Silky and concentrated, with terrific lift and noble rusticity to its rich, sharply delineated red fruit flavors. Really saturates the entire mouth without leaving any impression of weight. The tannins are completely enrobed by the wine's velvety texture. This impeccably balanced wine leaves the taste buds vibrating. Boasts the class and texture of a grand cru. I recently opened a bottle of the 1993 and the family resemblance was clear. But the 2010 boasts suaver tannins and greater refinement.

Once again, reduction mars the nose. However the supple and silky middle weight flavors are shaped by extremely fine-grained tannins that impart a lovely texture to the pure and simply gorgeously complex finish that seems to go on and on. Like the Vaucrains, this is exceptionally well-balanced and should also amply reward long-term cellaring. One to buy.
