DESCRIPTION

A very fresh if subdued, even brooding nose features notes of both red and dark currants, game, earth and a hint of humus. There is outstanding size, weight and punch to the big-bodied and very serious flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration as well as markedly firm tannins on the strikingly long and complex finish. This is very Vaucrains. Burghound 91-94 Outstanding!

Black cherry and rich chocolatey oak on the nose.  Darker in fruit character than the Les Saint-Georges, showing a distinctly musky wildness to its flavors of black raspberry and bitter chocolate.  Hugely ripe and sweet but nicely leavened by ripe, harmonious acidity.  Finishes saline and soil-driven, with serious but sweet tannins to support a graceful evolution in bottle.  I marginally prefer the Saint-Georges and Cailles today for their higher-pitched aromatics but this is a big boy. Tanzer 92-94
