Thirty-five years on tasting.
Sonorous garnet, monumental amplitude at its core. Come-hither floral and game essences. Spicy, top-drawer toasted. A full-bodied wine, with staggering saturation for its age. Fresh as a daisy. Poised yet insistent black fruit: kirsch, black raspberry liqueur and sloe. The texture of plush velvet. Succulent and very long, finishing in crescendo. A wine of glossy seamlessness over specificity, more Marcel Guigal than Côte-Rôtie. But man, what an impressive drink! Now – 2023+.
