($270; bottled just ten days prior to my visit) Rich aromas of smoke, butter and hazelnut. Rich and pure but youthfully austere and a bit disjointed today, even a bit rustic in the early going. But this is impressively large-scaled and chewy for the vintage. Needs a good five or six years to incorporate its rather strong acidity (actually, 4.6 grams per liter-at the high end for this cellar in this vintage).
