Tasting Notes and Scores
Tasting note: An expressive, wonderfully complex and notably ripe nose of strawberry and raspberry jam notes mixed with cassis, ripe earth and hints of spice and animale merge into round, sweet, forward and deep flavors that are incredibly rich, dense and long but not particularly lively, indeed even a bit flat. Lignier told me that he was also surprised at the lack of verve and that the wine had been showing significantly better the prior week. Given the incredible track record for this wine as well as how well the rest of the range showed, I'm inclined to accept this at face value but readers should be aware that it was not a stellar showing and my score is based more on an impeccable history of consistency and the obvious quality of the underlying material.
