Simply absurd. Incredible concentration, all leather and bitter chocolate and stewed fruit and black black tar. Voluptuous and concentrated, but with great grip. And despite all the savor and brood, still there's plenty of nerve.

No aggressive Nebbiolo tannins; satin-like smoothness; Delicate & complex; the proverbial peacock. I would have guessed a good Premier Cru Burgundy.

Beautiful hand select by Daniel (thank you!). Clove, tobacco, dried cherries, smoke, ginger, dried rosé petals. Full, rich, but stony and light on it's feet. Yes.

Super disappointed! I’ve had this producer many times but not this bottling or this vintage. Smells like stewed overripe plums (possibly heat damaged bottle? - but bought and pickup from reputable source). Over the hill, awful, tastes like it smells. SS
