Black cherry and red berry aromas offset by notes of violets are confirmed on the palate of this grand cru, which shows full, ripe dark fruit flavors on the palate and finish with a suggestion of herbs and minerals.
Wine & Spirits(2009 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. Complex wood spice chimes in the upper registers of this wine, with sweet vanilla and sarsaparilla. It's grounded more by acidity than tannin or direct fruit, and though the wine is substantial in size, it's not showing much of itself. An intriguing scent of crystallized rose hints at what may evolve as this ages.
