Here the pretty, fresh and even airy nose is distinctly floral in character with lovely notes of mostly red currant, earth and soft underbrush nuances. There is good richness to the round and solidly well-concentrated flavors that culminate in a dusty, palate coating and beautifully long finish. This isn’t as structured as the Mazoyères but will certainly require at last 7 to 8 years of restraint. 93/2026+
