Oh baby! Just gorgeous nose, drop dead and effusive. Lifted notes of red currant jam, red plums, spiced figs. So much garrigue and lavender. Pepper, pastis, bittersweet cocoa, sweet leather, pipe tobacco, savory meat and truffle. Tannins still have some grit and once could argue it's got some more time ahead but the condition of the nose/palate are so great.

Gorgeous! Kirsch, garrigue, Provençal herbs. Love this wine! A little creme brûlée on the finish!

Light and spicy with richness and length that impresses. Still vibrant and youthful. Wish I had more.

Opened up really nicely! Nose showed some age and fruit was mellow and well balanced. Interesting bottle - a little funky but in a good way. #burgfestwarmup
