2010 st. Em Gr. Cru. Needs more time. Very dry. Not offensive. Opened up. Very tannic. Needs food.

Color is darker than a starless night. Entirely opaque. Vegetal on the nose. Dirty licorice root. Acidity hums through pretty vibrantly, floral and tart berry fruit. Tannin comes through eventually, although subtly. The harmony is a bit off, mostly because the acid is wonky. Not bad, but too difficult in the balance department.

Kers, zoethout, mineralen. Rijk maar ook de nodige diepgang. Heerlijk.
