Nose starts out tight. Then blossoms into deep berry fruit, game, smoked meats, florals, smoke, leather, so complex. So classic. Palate is super serious and super young but has wonderful balance, freshness and depth. I just popped this and it is perfect to follow along for the rest of the day. Really great energy and freshness and expanding mid palate of berry fruit is developing. Awesome texture and concentration while having a substantial refined yet there tannic backbone. Why Burgaud ages so well. Long finish. I’ll update as it airs.

Now after 5-6 hours of air this is really coming into its own. So olivey and floral. Stunning blueberry. Game. Meat. Just gorgeous. Palate is full of fruit, freshness and finesse. Gorgeous sappiness and terrific acidity. A baby but what a wine.
