Pepper, floral, mint, tea, earth, cherry, red plum. Baby bit of bretty funk. Almost smelled like a right bank Bordeaux at first. I like it, not everyone else did.

Man. El Ideas again. Outstanding. Bought this in France at the winery in 1995. Did not disappoint. Wish I had more. Carried home in carry on (those were the days!) with 11 other Burgundies. Mmmmm.

I fell in love with this wine over the course of four hours. It showed such incredible power yet retained a sense of grace and beauty about it. So complex and rich yet balanced by integrated acidity.

Mix of juicy dark fruit layers. Plums, cherries, currants, lots of spices, violet, and mineral notes throughout. Very fine and elegant and approachable. Avg. vine age 67 years.
