Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarGood deep red-ruby. Sexy, carnal aromas of blackberry, iron and mocha. Broad, dry and minerally, with impressive intensity of flavor for 15-year-old vines. Strong earth tones of mocha, brown spices and rust. This is also surprisingly creamy but the mineral edge gives it shape and grip. Finishes broad, long and aromatic, with somewhat dusty tannins. Ponsot says that today's plants can "reach the real terroir," by which he means can descend about seven meters, in as little as seven years.
