The best First Growth in my book, tasted several times and always lip-smackingly delicious! It has what can only be described as a joyous bouquet of ebullient red-berried fruit with hints of truffle and something a little exotic: Medjool dates and fig. With aeration, those more classic aromas of cedar and pencil lead become more dominant. The palate is full-bodied with very tannins, a strong backbone, superb weight and sweetness - a touch of hoi sin and apricot towards the finish. Divine. Drink now-2025+...
