An intense, dark ruby, enticing, this offers a dramatic nose, polished and flamboyant, dark fruit enriched with mocha and vanilla, silk-textured and opulent. The palate picks up on the aromatics presented on the nose, but is more complex, with perfumed red fruit, cherries and floral primary notes refreshing a brooding, earthy base. Rounded, with no hard edges, there is nonetheless power here, as befits its grand cru status and a tannic structure which merits respect, time and patience. Sophisticated and elegant, this will improve during élevage, the toasted notes from 60% new oak becoming better integrated and adding further complexity
