(From 2012 Vintage) The wine exhibits a glass-coating opaque purple color with an expressive nose of pain grille, underbrush, brier, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry fruit leading to a plush, opulent wine with great density, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish.
(From 2002 Vintage) Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruit (cassis) and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, savory and opulence combine in the palate of this wine that little by little develops in the bottle.
