(50% wood, approximately one-third of which was new). Notably more subtle though still evident wood influence allows the white flower, mineral reduction and iodine suffused nose to be expressed clearly. The full-bodied and overtly muscular flavors possess excellent richness, size and weight as well as ample amounts of both dry extract and a driving minerality on the explosive, iodine and saline-infused and linear finish. This is a gorgeous Les Clos that despite its size and weight remains beautifully balanced and focused and the superb length is genuinely remarkable. 94/2018+
