(from a .74 ha parcel of 35+ year old vines). This too is notably ripe yet manages to remain wonderfully fresh with its super-spicy aromas of red currant, cherry, raspberry and lavender. There is terrific verve and power to the big-bodied, mineral-driven and concentrated flavors that deliver superb depth and length on the almost painfully intense finale. However despite all of the concentration and overt muscularity this very, very firmly structured effort remains faultlessly well-balanced though note well that this is going to require an extended snooze in a cool cellar. This is reference standard Malconsorts. 95/2030+
