Crimson, medium-full, just a touch of rim variation. Hypnotic, rich, perfumed nose. Showy but elegant. Impressive core of fruit, both black and red. Classy and harmonious. Long, with impressive mid-palate dimension. A fine bottle. A very aromatic wine. For many, the wine of the evening and, interestingly, showed better than the ’99 JJ Confuron Beaux Monts on this night. Now – 2023.
