So well balanced, nicely herbal/tobacco undertones to the concentrated, red fruit. Still quite oaky, needs more time in bottle.

So!! I think it’s a great day for wine drinking 😋🍷🍷 this is a wine to make the Comte proud. Great nose and well structured, still young because there are bucketloads of dark forest fruit. Smooth but firm tannins and a great mouthfeel.

Other night. Bold. 2010 still needed air and had plenty of time left for the cellar.

Earthy nose with dark fruit, some black current, and some red fruit. Good acidity. Lower tannins.
