DESCRIPTION

Bright red. Enticing floral lift to the aromas of raspberry, cherry, blood orange and earth. Sappy, spherical and sweet, showing superb mineral tension to the flavors of red cherry, red berries, fig and earth. Wonderfully balanced for Rognet, which can be high in alcohol. Finishes bright, stony and very long, with a suggestion of oyster shell. Should evolve very slowly. -- Stephen Tanzer 92-94

 

Here the nose is distinctly different as it combines overt sauvage scents with those of pomegranate and dark cherry liqueur aromas, all of which is trimmed in plenty of warm earth nuances. There is fine volume and plenty of power to the muscular, powerful and robust big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration as well as impressive persistence. What this doesn't have, at least not yet is the outstanding depth and thus my predicted range is somewhat wider than it usually is. The requisite underlying material does appear to be in place so that this additional complexity can develop and I am optimistic that it will in time.  Burghound 90-94
