9.1

Drank 10/9/19

Classic right bank nose opens with plums, earth, some cassis, and just a hint of cedar. Velvety black fruit leather, and a touch of green from the cab franc, with medium, well integrated tannins lend support to the medium+ body. A well made wine from a good producer, in an average vintage.

4/21/8/4/4+50=91 pts.

Finish is grippy. Definitely young.

Slate minerality, black fruit, black pepper, smoked meat, pepperoni. Salty with strong tannins, long finish and luscious mouthfeel.

First grand cru. Well balanced, nice crisp acid, smooth tannin, orange zest on the palate, musty finish.
