(a blend of 60 and 40 year old vines). Deeper register aromas of earthy but spicy dark berry fruits and a touch of animale leads to serious, dense and relatively powerful flavors that culminate in a dusty, mouth coating and admirably persistent finish. This doesn’t have the style of the Bousselots but it’s appealing in its way. It’s interesting how these two vineyards, which abut one another, give completely different results. (89-91)/2012+
