94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013
Saturated dark red. Purple fruit aromas are complicated by coffee and lifted by a violet topnote; less gamey than the Charmes. Very rich and concentrated but less showy than the Charmes, displaying powerful but subdued flavors of black cherry and licorice. Dense, dark grand cru with a strong spine of dusty tannins and a tangy peppery note on the back. Also more imploded than the Charmes and probably built for a longer life in bottle. The 2011 Griottes is a more feminine wine than the '11 Charmes, but this 2010 is distinctly more powerful.
