Fullish ruby. Deep, soil-driven and blue-inflected: peony, hoisin, myrtille and sloe strained though marl. An old-viney concentration: resiny, enveloped, rich in dry-extract. Still some fine-grained tannin, firm but seamless. Not a bit hard. Distinctive and rocky at the end. Still to arrive at its majority: by comparison, the ’95 and ’98 Beaux Monts from J.J. Confuron have realized their potential, are more giving today. Now – 2030.
