Vinous – 94+
Deep red-ruby. Black cherry, minerals on the nose, with a suggestion of dark berry syrup. Sweet, lush and superripe but not yet as aromatic or complex in the middle palate as the Cazetiers. But this is wonderfully dense, silky and round. Finishes very long and sweet, with greater complexity emerging as the wine opens in the glass. Serafin suggests pairing this wine with beef and the Cazetiers with game, but I hope he wasn’t suggesting I do this anytime soon.
