Bright, dark red. Deep, sappy aromas of black raspberry, animal fur, game and coffee. A step up in richness of fruit from the village wines, showing more stuffing to support its acidity. Still quite primary, this wine displays an oaky sweetness and firm tannins in the early going. Offers excellent potential.

This is even more aromatically complex with its restrained, pure and cool array of red and dark berry, underbrush, earth and sauvage elements. There is a velvety mouth feel yet fine precision to the more evident mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with sap that also serves to buffer the moderately firm tannic spine on the lingering and balanced finish. This is really quite good.
