(2010 Vintage) Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruits (cassis) and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice, which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, flesh and opulence combine and develop little by little in the bottle.
International Wine CellarRuby-red. Sharply focused raspberry, cassis and floral aromas are complicated by zesty minerals and a suave cocoa quality. Sweet red berry and cherry flavors are strikingly pure and deep, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and firmness. The mineral character repeats on the impressively long, juicy finish. There are plenty of $100 wines that can't match this.
