($155) Medium red. Riper, darker nose features blueberry, spices and a sexy earthy perfume. Supple and juicy, with excellent spicy lift to the blackberry, blueberry, game and mineral flavors. Sweeter and denser than the village example but more noteworthy for its insinuating soil tones than for sheer size-or is this simply in a shell today? The long, resounding, dry finish features very fine-grained tannins and lovely lift. This, too, seems to be shutting down in the bottle. But it should be long-lived.

Very glorious fruit expression on the nose. Complete. Spreads right across the palate. Real delicacy and lift. Lovely stuff. Still lots of tannin but well hidden. Thierry Bruin thinks it will close up soon but it’s still pretty lovely now. (JR)

Popped and poured. Dark ruby. Deep nose of t and a, blue fruits and spicy oak. Still completely primary and has yet to absorb the oak. Distinct minerality in the mouth, well structured, but not lean. Good balance between acidity and tannins. Long finish. Long life ahead.

Very fine, suprising depth this early in its evolution.
