($250) Bright red-ruby. Musky, brooding aromas of dark fruits, mocha, spices and minerals; appears to be shutting down on the nose. Dense, large-scaled and packed with fruit and extract. The liqueur-like black raspberry, underbrush and licorice root flavors expand on the back half and go on and on on the aftertaste. Vinified entirely with whole clusters, this wine shows an almost painful intensity today and should really be forgotten for at least a decade. A great young example of this grand cru.

Bright crimson. Very pure and powerful. So clean and brisk with great integrity. Complex already with hints of ripe, slightly bitter zesty fruit – super-ripe plums? oranges? - and an edge of mocha. Racy and the most intriguing edge of playfulness. Not pompous at all. Wonderful wine.
