The nose shows raspberry, floral and slightly smoky tones. The taste is intens and energetic, driven by raspberry and black cherry fruit. The middle offers a richer structure, dominated by dark fruit (blueberry), minerals, some peper and leather (already present in this early stage). Astonishing balance and elegance, definitely a fine wine, but good concentration. Remarkable easy drinking at young age due to the very soft tannines. A ‘old school’ Côte-Rôtie, with great aging potential. One can decide to drink this wine the coming 2 years to enjoy the primary fruit or to cellar her for at least 10 years for ‘the complete experience’.
