Pure class. CDP cannot be beat, producer trumps vintage. Graceful throughout its silky-rich structure and lengthy finish. Gorgeous array of red fruits, moving from fresh berries, to confiture and moving to dried. Raspberry in particular. Fig spice cake, sweet wood smoke, garrigue and lavender, menthol, some espresso and warm spices mingling about. Threads of roast meat, leather, tobacco. Just a lovely showing, this is prime right now, but could easily go another 5-8 years and mature beautifully.

Pleased that this was showing well, as last bottle was flawed. Unique flavor profile that does not include citrus or oak. Velvety, almost oily mouth feel.

This is in a beautiful place. Red fruit, lavender, garrique. Traditional, old school.

Liquorice, smoke, raisin. Hint of iron minerality. Spiced apple, light tannins, medium bodied. Subdued alcohol suggest it won't go too much longer. Drinking beautifully now. A bargain for a less regarded vintage for those who took the punt 6 years ago. Pepper notes emerging a few hours later.
