The once strong wood has largely if not completely been absorbed and frames captivating but reserved aromas of game, earth and cassis that merge seamlessly into sweet, rich, powerful and very long full-bodied flavors of real size and weight. This is punchy but not at all rustic or hard. In short, this is a terrific effort with exceptionally good complexity and a really lovely inner mouth sweetness plus it's built to age.

Very clear colour. Explosive floral fragrances. Still very primary. Very smooth, silky tannins. Great balance with mouth-filling sweetness. Very deep, complex flavors of black fruits. Explosive mid-palate intensity and great persistence. Probably just arriving at its peak, as this wine was still closed and hard two years ago. An excellent Corton.
