"This is also quite spicy with a slightly more refined nose that features a relatively high-toned nose of essence of red currant that displays top notes of exotic tea and floral scents. There is terrific mid-palate concentration that brims with dry extract that imparts a relatively seductive mouth feel to the medium-bodied flavors and largely, if not completely, buffers the moderately firm tannic spine. In contrast to many of these grands crus this should be accessible slightly earlier though if you're interested in drinking it when it's fully mature, plan on waiting."
Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media:
"Bright red. Lovely lift to the aromas of redcurrant, iron and dried rose. Sappy and exuberant on the palate, showing complex soil-driven flavors of red fruits, iron, Asian spices and minerals. Chewy, saline, electric wine with a mounting peacock's tail of a finish featuring piquant minerality and lingering perfume."
