The nose seems to be taken directly from extract of cassis as the aromas are so ripe yet incredibly fresh and possess an extraordinary panoply of secondary nuances, including earth, underbrush, leather, soy and spice. The powerful, indeed forceful flavors coat and stain the palate and completely buffer the solid tannic spine. In short, this is flat out incredible juice and worth a special search to find. In a word, wow!

($169) Dee p ruby-red. Knockout nose combines dark berries, rose petal, iron, flint, leather, smoke and minerals. Dense, broad and deep, with an almost confectionery sweetness. Wonderfully ripe and concentrated yet light on its feet, with superb definition of flavor. Extremely long and soil-inflected, with the wine's substantial but noble tannins thoroughly buffered by echoing fruit. Another great vintage for this wine, which is frequently Chambertin-like in a way that too few Chambertins are. I'd lay this down for a good decade.
