Barrel Sample. New wood aromas underline the smoky, toasty nature of this wine. It’s all extraction, with a dark chocolate flavor and a firm, dry texture. It will need a long time to soften.
The core of plum and raspberry fruit mingles with a note of red licorice on the finish. Fresh acidity provides balance throughout. Solid.
Lots of sweet spice scent -- clearly expensive oak. Dry, savoury palate with a fine-grained tannic texture. Persistent length. Rich without being overwrought. The fruit stands up to the oak and the structure too. Nicely done.
Good full ruby. Rather full-blown aromas of raspberry, truffle and underbrush are accompanied by strong notes of menthol and charred oak. Sweet, broad and fresh, this Saint-Emilion boasts a fat middle and juicy dark berry flavors but the building tannins show a slightly dry edge.
