A deft touch of wood frames an intensely earthy, complex and notably ripe nose that features notes of spice, plum and black currant. There is excellent richness, size, weight and muscle to the vibrant middle weight plus flavors that exude a fine extract on the mineral-driven finish that offers extraordinarily good length. This is primary to the point of being quite backward yet it is not hard or aggressive as the balance of structural elements is impeccable.

(85% whole clusters): Good medium red. Briary, smoky dark raspberry, minerals and flowers on the nose, plus a whiff of horseradish. Rich, dry and suave but youthfully closed, with pepper and spice notes running through to the firm aftertaste. This will be sweetened and opened up by a racking, but Seysses only planned to do this prior to the bottling. He admits that it's currently "angry"; it's certainly tricky to taste today.

The 2011 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a more immediate bouquet than the Clos Saint Denis. The 90% new oak is neatly absorbed and allows lovely black currant, raspberry leaf and oyster shell scents to shine. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy ripe tannins on the entry. It is nicely focused with fine tension and poise toward the finish. It is still primal of course but this shows good class. Drink now-2029.
