Bright ruby. Explosive, vibrant aromas of crystallized black raspberry, redcurrant and pungent minerals, plus a floral nuance. Thick, deep and powerfully fruity; given precision and verve by its strong mineral backbone and firm acidity. Very dense and suave. The limestone soil shows on the somewhat austere but very long finish. Tannins are firm but ripe, and the finish offers excellent grip. Not an easy style of wine considering that it's 80% merlot, but superb—and a far cry from the ungiving wines made under the previous ownership. ST
