Oak and menthol nuances serve as a backdrop to the gorgeously spicy aromas of black cherry, violet, plum, pomegranate liqueur and sandalwood scents. There is sensational density and power to the robust and overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of mouth coating dry extract that also does a fine job of buffering the very firm tannic spine on the hugely long and explosive finish. This is quite simply terrific with superb development potential and while it's present not as complex as the Bèze or Musigny, I sense that much more depth is in the making.
