(cask) dark robe; the bouquet is a beefy do, with a firm blue fruit aroma, a note of mulberry. It’s a close-knit opening, carries a hint of salinity, which adds interest. The palate is well assembled, engages with some stylish dark red fruit and munchy tannin, finishes in sync, as well, just an extra note of depth, tar, oak, there. Its shape is spherical in the making, and it can sing a good tune over time. 14.5°. 8,000 b. €65. From 2023, decant it. 2042-44 Nov 2019
