Good dark red. Wild aromas of musky plum, currant and tobacco complicated by smoky and truffley nuances. Plush, plummy and full, with decadent game and truffle notes and a distinctly fat, tactile texture. Sweeter and deeper than the 2007 normale, and seemingly more evolved aromatically. Finishes with big, rich, tongue-coating tannins. I would have mistaken this for the 2006 had I tasted the two wines blind: the 2006 has more volume while the 2007 is more penetrating.
