In much the same fashion as the Cazetiers the wood treatment is neither aggressive nor subtle as the overtly sauvage inflected aromas of plum, earth and floral scents can be appreciated but the wood doesn't make it any easier. There is outstanding size, weight, concentration and muscle to the mouth coating and impressively intense big-bodied flavors that exude a discreet minerality on the clearly built-to-age finish. Patience absolutely required.
Bright, dark red. Wild small red berries, earth and a whiff of caramel on the nose; still slightly reduced following the recent end of the malolactic fermentation in September. Rich, smooth and deep, showing a seamless texture and serious weight to the nicely detailed red fruit, smoke and earth flavors. A bit foxy like the name of the cru suggests. Conveys a strong impression of terroir. Finishes sweet and long, with ripe tannins. I would not be at all surprised if the finished wine merited a score at the top end of my projected range.
