Something had to be off here, unbelievable disappointment. I called this blind as cru bourgeois. Must be in an omega dumb phase, extreme reduced nose of minerals, plums and faint spice, and that's it. Mineral, elegant palate but finished quite short and seriously lacking flavor concentration and definition, and impact. I've had many a shut down wine, but this showed nothing at all, and was blown out by far less regarded wines at the table...2005 vintage

Tannins were integrated but still enough of a bite to keep it tasting young. Right balance of fruit and acidity. All kinds of roses and violets on the nose. Just mesmerizing!

Drank the 2005. Great year as you all know. It will mature a bit more the next ten years. I still have two more bottles. Keeping them with a sturdy lock!

Big nose of black cherry and balsam pine with similar notes on the palate as well as currant berries with a rounded and polished finish.
