Oh man what a great bottle of wine. Stunning nose of cherry flower, gorgeous smokiness, some high end leather, sopping red cherries, so deep, so high quality. Wow, what fruit. So decadent yet fresh and such energy! Really loads of cherries and just so so pure. Awesome purity. Velvety tannins and they just pump that sweet, pure fruit onto your palate. Invigorating, luscious and so so good. As it airs nose has a lipstick like intensity to it. One of the best BR’s ever. Terrific concentration sap and sweetness but finishes very mineral. — 5 days ago
Nose has italian bread, green apple slice, under-ripe lime wedge and cold ginger root.
Palate has lime slice, grapefruit zest with a lightly sweet limestone note on the finish; Great acidity.
This just came home with many more of the same; I'm excited for warmer weather as I think this will be a truly crush-able BdB on hot summer days!
Blended with three GC plots in Avize, Cramant & Choiully and 30% reserve wine from 1985+ — 17 days ago

On the palate there is black cherry, black raspberry, blueberry, black currant, floral notes, graphite, oak and earth.
This wine is full bodied that is tight in the mouth with medium + to high acidity and medium + to high grainy tannins that has a long dark fruit earthy finish. Have great weekend please be safe and stay healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 3 days ago
