Expert Reviews

90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Dark ruby-red.  Fresh, floral aromas of blackcurrant, herbs, talc and chocolate.  Currently dominated by oak on the palate, with minerally blackberry and blueberry flavors emerging only slowly with aeration.  Finishes with lively acidity and substantial but smooth tannins.  I don't find the rich creamy fruit this wine showed during the Primeurs; I wonder if it didn't see too much oak given the vintage's characteristics.  I wouldn't touch a bottle for another three or four years.
