Tasting Notes

Rather medicinal aromas of clove and menthol. Distinctly old-style, slightly rough Batard, with nothing gentle about it ("not the Giorgio Armani style of Batard," notes Saouma). Incredibly backward today, with its fruit in the deep background. There's something a bit rustic about this very powerful Batard, which finishes with serious tannic spine and outstanding length and lift. A bit of a cipher today, this will need extended cellaring.
