Even better from bottle than it was from cask, this wine has the potential to score even higher as it evolves. Unfortunately, because the yield was only 25 hectoliters per hectare, a very small amount of wine from this 6.5-acre vineyard of 50 year old vines was produced. Black purple in color, with elements of graphite, licorice and camphor as well as a foresty/floral note, the wine is super-dense, full-bodied, powerful, rich and capable of lasting 20-25 years. Thanks to the vintage's low acidity and ripe tannins, it has a certain accessibility... Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. Robert Parker
