"Good dark red. Ethereal aromas of red cherry, spices and dried flowers, plus a hint of chocolate liqueur. Wonderfully intense, seamless and lush, but with terrific integrated acidity giving punch to the very youthful cherry and rose petal flavors. The splendid rising, saline finish features fine-grained, glistening tannins and strong supporting fruit. Very alive and evolving slowly; the wine's explosive back end suggests that it has outstanding potential." 93-96 Stephen Tanzer
Vivid coloration ranging from deep ruby to black-cherry. Their aromas suggest strawberry, blackcurrant, and gooseberry as well as fruit pits, liquorice, and spices. Violet, moss and underbrush are also likely to be present. On the palate, power, opulence and elegance unite to make a full and complex body, full of sap and voluptuosness textured. Keeping potential is 10 years minimum. Although these sumptuous Grands Crus share a family resemblance, each has its own distinctive nuances.
