Less fruit than LBT, touch reduced, meaty, savory, mineral. Beef blood, iron, olive, granite, blackberry and plum. Garrigue notes the background. Showing more acid and linear profile and tight. Although maybe a little shut down right now I’m confident these will do great in the long haul.

More dark fruit, structured and tannic than the '14. More brooding, less fun.

Well structured with high acid and fine tannins. It took a bit of time to soften. Incredible amount of sediment given its age. Just such a great value and delicious wine.

Nose: blueberry, dried cherry, slight cedar, forest floor, bit of barnyard, raw meat.

Wish this had time to decant because we all called Left Bank Bordeaux. Once it opened, it was classic northern Rhone and Graillot. Powerful and elegant combined.
