Nose has juiced red cherries in stainless steel tank, dried grape vine, ripe black cherry, ripe blackberry, dry potting soil with trailing alcohol (13% ABV, seems more to us).
Palate has tannic cherry, ripe black currant, dried blackberry and steely notes. Still showing somewhat aggressive tannins, likely looking for another 10+Y in bottle or more extensive decanting time. We have noticed some mellowing of the more outlier traits in the past hour.

So much mineral complexity here. The chalky/wet stone character drives everything. Beneath ample red currant, green plum, and asian pear. Apple blossoms, something so pleasantly herbal, almost talcum like for me but more alluring. Can sense the warmth of the terroir, but not lacking spine or cut. Pure, clean, beautifully made, not easy to achieve given the method in the cellar. ~40 PM 30 PN 30 CH, 2016 base (L.BC16), 3/2019 disgorgement. Lovely paired with pasta w/ key shrimp, trout, dried tomatoes, saffron and tarragon. — 3 days ago
Oh man. So I tasted this, totally thought it could be corked or at least flawed. It was musty and muted. But since it was a BYO across country it is what it is so I waited. Total 180. Completely blossomed into what was a superb showing featuring weightless intensity and true elegance. The more delicate 2007 vintage is a terrific match for the more heavy handed style of Meo Camuzet. — 13 days ago
