(the crop level was normal in 2016; the Humberts own nearly one hectare out of a total of two for the appellation, with their 45-to-50-year-old vines facing full south): Bright, dark red. Very ripe, almost exotic nose conveys a hot-rocks character that reminded me of Châteauneuf du Pape! The plushest and sweetest of these premier crus, with black cherry and licorice flavors dominating. Finishes with big, ripe tannins and terrific echoing length. Conveys an impression of full phenolic maturity.
