($195) Deep red. Pure aromas of black fruits, sandalwood and mocha. Suave, silky and impressively concentrated, with superb volume for the vintage. Strongly mineral but also more expansive than it appeared to be from barrel a year ago. Very long, slow-mounting finish throws off notes of briary berries, mocha and peppery herbs. Both this and the Clos la Roche call for six to eight years of cellaring.
