Intensely dark with a murky dull reflection. The nose is powerful, intense aromas of over-ripe fruit, plum compote, rhubarb jam and black cherry. Magnificent purity, huge fruit character, mild tannin and refreshing acidity. Beautiful, opulent mouthfeel with loads of glycerol leading into a long finish. This wine is drinking like its ten years old. This will continue to improve for many years to come.
Still with a nice vibrant color of a young wine. Aromas of pine meddles, cigar box, raw pork, dusty red berry fruit and dried herbs. On the palate it has a beautiful texture, smooth and balanced. The lack of fruit on the nose is redeemed with plenty on the palate, medium bodied with a persistent tannic grip, medium acidity. Classic Saint Estephe made in that old style of Bordeaux but with a certain opulence that is indicative of the 82 vintage. Medium+ length.
e nose shows a pronounced cassis and ripe, black cherry character, high intensity. Medium+ body with graceful, complementing acidity and mild tannins for a considerably young wine. Well balanced and not over the top. Drinking well now and will continue for the next 10-15 years+ medium length.
