A background but not invisible application of wood easily allows the cool and pure essence of red and dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced by almost pungent earth, animale, humus and underbrush nuances to shine. There is terrific punch and muscularity to the big-bodied, intense and mineral-driven flavors that display excellent delineation on the beautifully complex and hugely long finale. This is a very serious and built-to-age effort that will require plenty of patience before it reaches its peak.
This wine is already well balanced. Ripe strawberries and red cherries are shot through with the acidity of the vintage. The tannins are present, complementing the already attractive fruits. The aftertaste shows the considerable potential with its tannins. Drink from 2020.
