Tasted On 07/02/2013

At its core it remains ruby red, thinning out ever so slightly at the rim. Bold aromas of pen ink, ripe blackberry, blueberry and cassis leaf that is slightly hinting at cigar box, it has a certain complexity that has you searching for more and is more perfumed than any other Saint-Estephe that I have put to my nose. The palate shows gobs of fresh, ripe, sweet berry fruit, with acidity and tannin in perfect balance, it has a mouthfeel that i'v only met with once before in the 82 vintage, high in glycerol almost like a Cabernet form California at less than ten years old. Sweet fruit and extraordinary purity. A perfect bottle of this wine

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
