Inky ruby. Fresh blueberry, cherry and floral pastille scents are complemented by deeper notes of candied licorice and pipe tobacco. Offers an array of dark fruit and pungent spice flavors that gain sweetness with air and pick up a smoky quality. Finishes smooth and long, leaving juicy blue fruit and peppery spice notes behind. Lots of fruit that's normally earmarked for the Belle Helene and Lancement bottlings wound up in this wine in 2011, Ogier told me, and it shows in the wine's power.
