93/100 Wine Spectator
Cellaring: Drink now or cellar until 2025.
Tasted by JM in 2012: "A seductive wine, with aromas and flavors of macerated currant, black truffle, roasted apple wood and espresso all blending together, supported by a solid backbone of charcoal and ganache notes. An underlying bloodiness is there and should emerge more as the wine mellows in the cellar. Best from 2013 to 2025." JM
