Forthcoming aromas of cherry, raspberry, spice and graphite are the main themes, with smoke and tar accents lurking underneath. Everything is in the right place, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. 45 cases imported.
Score: 93 points -- Wine Spectator, Apr 2017
Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfume and chalky lift to the aromas of blackberry, violet, minerals and bitter chocolate; this smells like Vosne-Romanée. Pure liquid silk in the mouth, offering flavors of black cherry and saline minerality. Finishes saline, suave and dry, still holding a lot in reserve. Firmly tannic but not dry. The old vines here are more than 60 years of age but half of this vineyard was replanted in 2003 and the young vines have gone into this wine since 2011.
