Tasting Notes and Scores
Here the restrained yet markedly spicy and beautifully layered nose is composed of liqueur-like red and black cherry, earth and lavender aromas. This is sleeker and more refined than the Grands Ech though the medium plus weight flavors possess no better mid-palate concentration or power. There is plenty of the hallmark minerality and I very much like the texture on the balanced, persistent and harmonious finale. A wine of class and grace that should also age for years. Drink 2030+ (April 2015).
