Vinous – 92-94
(the crop level here was normal): Good medium red-ruby. Slightly wild scents of black cherry and minerals. Dense, suave and thick with black raspberry, black cherry, mineral, earth and spice flavors. This wine has the almost chocolatey richness of a 2015 but with noteworthy inner-mouth perfume and saline energy. Substantial spreading tannins are keeping the wine’s finishing flavors under wraps today but this grand cru offers considerable potential.
