Professional Reviews


This is presently quite firmly reduced and unreadable. On the plus side there is more volume, punch and power to the sleekly muscular flavors that also possess a wonderfully refined mouth feel while delivering still better persistence on the youthfully austere finale. This is excellent though patience definitely required. (91-93)/2026+


Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

Bright medium red; more saturated than the Les Aussy. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of redcurrant, boysenberry and violet. Fine-grained and classically dry but not at all austere, conveying considerable early complexity to its flavors of purple fruits and subtle saline minerality. Finishes quite refined, with a serious dusting of smooth tannins and lingering notes of black raspberry and menthol. Lovely potential here. This shows a relaxed quality in the way of so many 2016s that escaped the frost.
