Background notes of oak frame a highly expressive nose that offers up scents of violets, spice, freshly crushed raspberries and wet stone. This is bigger and more concentrated than the regular cuvée with exceptionally good richness on the naturally sweet medium full-bodied flavors that are utterly seductive. There is a highly beguiling opulence to the textured, indeed even silky mouth feel though the gorgeously long finish tightens up quickly as the ripe tannins are extremely firm. This has the potential to be genuinely great if you have the patience. (93-96)/2028+
