(from vines first planted in 1902; this cuvée is not made every vintage). A trace of reduction cannot completely dampen the spicy and earthy nose that is otherwise similar to that of the regular cuvée. There is slightly more depth and breadth to the suave, round and palate staining big-bodied flavors that also possess immense mid-palate concentration that creates a suave and seductive shock absorber for the big but round tannins that show up on the seriously long finish. This is terrific. (92-94)/2021+
