Sensational wine. Essence of kirsch liqueur with garrigue and smoked meat notes, and all that while keeping great balance and elegance. Has good earth and amazing sappiness. Finish goes on forever. If this won’t last 15-20 years, I don’t know what will. Amazing wine and I am confident that saying this was scored conservatively by the professionals is not an overstatement. Must buy in my book.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
