Almost black robe, with orange notes.
Nose: under-wood, mushrooms, red and black ripe fruits, white flowers, sweet flowers like violet, then spices family arrives (soft: cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, hard: pepper), and next balsamic notes (scrub, menthol, licorice) and empyreumatic (toasted, roasted)
On the palate, same aromas but in a different order, with retro-olfaction. Soft spices are more present, then black fruits then flowers. Very long and fine tanins.
?250 Best Wines Wine Buying Guide 2009? By Oz Clarke ?What the varieties are is still tasking me, but they're old French Rhone Valley performers on top form here. this has a fabulous aroma of Belgian milk chocolate that makes you think the wine will be soft and mellow, but it's strongly influenced by wind-blown stony dust and an insistent but surprisingly soft tannin. It has fascinating wild hillside seasoning of bay, thyme and rosemary all badgering the dark mulberry, sloe and blackberry fruit. Visceral stuff, a mixture of mature and young, herb and fruit, tannin and softness, youthful vigour and the more contemplative snug bar mellowness of age."
