Burghound: (from a .4 ha parcel). This is decidedly more reserved than the Ech with reticent spice and wood notes adding depth to the ripe scents of plum, dark currant and dried flowers. There is a sophisticated mouth feel to the intense and big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a wonderfully long, powerful and palate staining finish. This should be terrific but note well that plenty of cellar time will be required. 2027+ A "Don't Miss" wine. 92-95 Points
