Healthy color for the vintage. The attractively perfumed nose is composed by pure and still primary aromas of earth, spice, red currant and hints of the sauvage where there are no evident herbal tea nuances. There is fine volume and a lovely sense of energy to the well-delineated flavors that culminate in a still reasonably firm, moderately austere and slightly linear finish that flashes a hint of pit fruit character. What this is not is especially complex and while it certainly has at least another 4 to 7 years before this reaches its peak, it is doubtful that it’s going to develop the sheer depth that categorizes the finest vintages of this wine. 90/2023+
