Author: Allen Meadows
Issue: Issue 25
An equally fresh if perhaps not quite as ripe nose of red fruit and mineral-infused aromas of surpassing complexity introduce delicious, intense and slightly firmer medium full flavors that culminate in a subtly persistent finish. This is refined and exceptionally pure and while it is on the lighter side, the focus, detail and precision is extremely impressive. Like the Ruchottes, this trades on elegance and refinement yet there is no lack of flavor authority despite the absence of raw size and weight.

Medium cherry-red. Perfumed, precise nose shows a mineral pungency to go with the red cherry, raspberry and spice aromas. Sweet, juicy and tightly wound, with more obvious acidity and oak influence than the foregoing samples. This is very suave and subtle-exactly the kind of wine that's overlooked in competitive tastings. Finishes with restrained sweetness and sneaky persistence, with suggestions of vanilla and caramel. This very refined, vibrant wine really calls for five or six years of patience.

Not especially deep ruby. Complex nose with some jewel-fruit excitement. Sweet, spicy and with no awkward corners. Thoroughly well-knitted and balanced, but with quite prominent acidity still. Rather a racy wine but it should have quite an exciting life ahead of it. Lots of electricity!
