Red fruits and overwhelming oak and cedar aromas. Black fruit, plums and a stemmy bitterness despite fairly smooth tannins. Showing its youth.

Very good. Went well with the Cote de boeuf! It mellowed very nicely once our meals arrived. Would recommend to anyone, and will definitely try it again.

Incredible nose of smoke and tar that was more reminiscent of great Burgundy from Echezeaux, really unique in many ways.
