2008 barrel sample @ Chateau. Deeply colored, pooling blue; red rim. Glass streaks and eddying swirls. This is already intense! Big, full bodied with enormous grip & a scaffolding of solid structure. Tannic and drying, austere. Nice long length. Not as balanced as H-B, and not as kid-friendly either. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% M; 0.75% CF, and 0.25% Petit Verdot. 40% of the harvest, another severely selected wine. A brawny and stubborn wine for En Primeur, not that there's anything wrong with that! Check back in 2020, this one will need the most time of the Firsts to assimilate and uncover the great fruit from the Enclos plots. 92-94 pts.

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.
