(from Les Crais, Creux Brouillard, En Champs, Les Cercueils, Clos Prieur Haut and Bas, La Marie and Estournelles St. Jacques). This is much more deeply pitched and pungently earth with its array of very fresh red and dark berries that carry whiffs of earth and the sauvage. The rich, round and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors possess better depth and persistence as well as notably better underlying material. Note that this well-made effort is going to require at least a few years of patience first. (88-91)/2024+
