Ruby-red. Wild, slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, minerals, leather and game. Fine-grained and quite dry, even a bit stunted in the middle palate in the early going; not at all a blockbuster. But this juicy, primary, youthfully imploded wine boasts terrific energy. The long finish leaves behind a pungent note of tart cherry. This grand cru should be a long ager.  Vinous/SteveTanzer 92-94

There is just enough reductive funk in evidence here as well to push what appear to be notably ripe fruit aromas to the background. I very much like the sense of energy to the lustrously textured broad-shouldered flavors that possess fine mid-palate density as well as a subtle minerality that progressively emerges as the long finish sits on the palate. This is very clearly built-to-age yet there is so much supporting extract that it should actually be approachable much younger than my suggested drinking window would indicate. In a word, terrific.  Burghound 92-95 Sweet Spot
