Ample wood spice and menthol nuances add breadth to the beautifully complex and markedly ripe plum, cassis and black currant suffused nose. There is a beguiling sense of underlying tension to the precise and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that possess both excellent volume and plenty of power, all wrapped in a firm, austere and overtly tannic finale. Like the old vines Gevrey this is an old school example and is best suited for those who have the patience to wait as this will definitely require it.
