Lovely Christmas dinner to go with out dry aged rib roast. Soft and subtle. First hour in decanter was tight not a lot on the nose, at hour 3 perfect balance of bell pepper, light earthy like the smell of a dirt trail in the summer. Hints of blackberry and leather. Palate is silky smooth but plenty of acid to hold up against the rich roast. Still time on this vintage but maybe 5-10 years

Bright fruit aromas. The palate tells a different story. Plum, tobacco, herbs, and that delicious Cordier funk. Nice long finish and tannins that are barely there.

Exceptional wine ! Deep plum and black currant notes with complexity, soft tannins but still strong aromas. Cigar box and leather. When is the next 30 !?
