(from classic red Mercurey soil; tasted from tank): Bright, dark ruby-red. Lively scents of black cherry, licorice and flowers. Round and sweet but penetrating in the mouth; less showy than the Framboisière but more firmly structured. This juicy midweight offers a solid core of dark cherry and licorice flavor and finishes with rising floral length and a distinctly dark cast.
Score: (88-90) points -- Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, November 2017
