Incredibly layered and complex, powerful and intense with terrific integration of fruit and earth. Blackberry, cassis, damp earth and hints of smoke. Sensational now and can have decades to go.

2001. Nah. I don't usually put it this way but this is really like a shut young ch. Figeac. Toss.

Developing nose, but surprisingly fresh. Tannins still rich. Tobacco, herbs de Provence.
