Vinous – 94+
Bright medium red. Spicy, youthfully imploded nose hints at raspberry, rose petal and gingerbread; classic Clos Saint-Denis. Juicy, spicy and intense in the mouth, with terrific tension and cut to the flavors of sweet red berries and minerals. Linear today but not at all lean. Finishes very long and firmly tannic, at once delicate and palate-staining. Really penetrating minerality and energy here, and nowhere near ready to drink. Boasts outstanding potential.
