(from both Charmes and Mazoyères). Discreet but not invisible wood easily allows the notably floral-suffused nose of spicy red and dark currant and earth aromas to be appreciated. There is fine richness and a taut muscularity to the bigger and more powerful flavors that possess a lovely sense of energy on the structured, balanced and beautifully persistent finish. Note well that at least some patience is going to be required here. (91-94)/2027+
