About the Wine
93 points, Wine Spectator
“ A tense, tannic version, with a firm matrix surrounding the black cherry, spice and mineral notes. Comes together on the long aftertaste, yet will require some time in bottle to fully harmonize. Best from 2021 through 2036.”
"Healthy dark red. Very pure, complex aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, smoke, earth, roast coffee and chocolate. Suaver and more pliant in the mid-palate than the Grand Clos des Epenots, and showing a more pleasing early balance. The serious but fully ripe, fine-grained tannins arrive late, allowing the wine’s red fruit and soil flavors to expand and linger. This intensely flavored wine transcends its appellation."
