What a surprise..!
This is a very noteworthy wine in this vintage.
Dark colour - black core. Upon opening it shows wonderful notes of grilled meat, roasted capsicum and herbs, coffee, chocolate, incense and blackberries. Tannines are wonderfully integrated and there is a lovely savory quality on the palate. Only slightly rustic, this CF-heavy (!) Saint Emilion is drinking beautifully now.
René Gabriel was right. It’s quite remarkable.

4 hrs after opening, warming up a little bit, it even improves...!
