Vinous

Lurid ruby. A complex, hugely perfumed bouquet evokes red and blue fruit preserves, exotic spices, incense and floral oils, along with a vibrant mineral quality that builds steadily as the wine opens up. Alluringly sweet, seamless and broad on the palate, offering densely packed yet lithe raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that show remarkable clarity and back-end power. The mineral and floral components drive an extremely long, sweet finish that s given shape by smooth, well-knit tannins. The interplay of power and finesse here is awfully impressive. This wine, along with its Le Réserve sibling, is a standout in what has turned out to be a monumental vintage for the region.
