Rich and bold, the wine is dark maroon. It’s not shy, with big blackcurrant fruit. There is an energy on the mid-palate, real vitality. It finishes with silky fruit and grippy tannins.
Creamy and alluring in style, with lemon sorbet, white peach, yellow apple, fennel and jasmine notes all curling around one another. A warm brioche accent completes the finish.
Lovely crushed raspberry and boysenberry fruit glides along, lined with licorice, roasted apple wood and plum sauce notes. The long, fleshy finish has good focus, with a lingering hint of tar.
Extreme ripeness, phenomenal concentrations. And, yet, no imbalance, but, on the contrary, a distinct nobility... Future superlative Classic !
It has an exotic nose reminiscent of pineapple upside down cake with its caramelized pineapple, brioche, and honeysuckle nuances, and it’s rich, medium to full-bodied, and has a great texture.
