'Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Dark raspberry, pungent smoky minerality and a sexy hint of underbrush on the Musigny-like nose and palate. Wonderfully rich, silky, fleshy wine with outstanding integrated mineral energy. An utterly pure, highly complex wine with great subtle depth and an explosive, unflagging finish featuring noble tannins and pronounced mineral salts. This beauty really leaves the taste buds humming. Incidentally, one of the four barrels of this elixir was new; Perrot-Minot told me he would not use any new oak if he only had three barrels of a wine.'
