15% alc.

Lots of (French) oak on both the nose and palate.
I could see this score high with certain critics based on the sheer size but I found it somewhat out of balance and have doubts it will ever "find its feet".

Still a VERY good wine but given the pedigree (and price point) I was expecting a bit more.

There is such a thing as TOO MUCH funk. All earth, no fruit on the nose. Falls short on the palate. Looks like someone dropped the ball in the vineyard in '09

A truly beautiful wine. Nicely aged but nowhere near done.
