(also from a full 1 ha parcel of 50+ year old vines that saw 40% new wood) Wonderfully complex aromas that are reserved, tight and backward complement superbly rich, classy and pure full-bodied, indeed even muscular flavors of almost painful intensity that possess an impressive level of dry extract. This is quite deep and exceptionally fine for Combettes, all wrapped in a palate staining finish. Lovely and altogether impressive.

($119) Aromatic nose combines peach and nut oils; comes across as less focused today than the Champs-Canet. Sweet, ripe and peachy but also penetrating and powerful, with a strong spice character. A bit youthfully muscular and broad-shouldered. Best today on the very long finish. I'd be surprised if this were not more elegant three or four years down the road.
