s heavily weighted to Merlot, I suspect as it is meant as an ode to 1947 Ch. Petrus, which Aaron tasted several years ago. I can't find any percentages on the Pott site and didn't think to ask Aaron what the breakdown is. The nose has a beautiful entry of herb, cassis and slate that are expansive, but tightly bound to each other. On the palate, I find violet and other fleeting floral characteristics leading into a delicately formed core that is disarmingly subtle in the layering of black currant, cherry, espresso and toasted oak. It is a young wine ready for a very long nap.
