Reticent at first, with classic tones of ripe, polished blackcurrant fruit and a nice earthy, truffly background, There is clarity here, and polish, with some pencil shaving and a sense of mineral elegance. On the palate this wine revealed itself slowly over the course of an hour, getting better each time as the fruit seemed to solidify on the mid-palate, giving it flesh and charm to add to its obvious structure.
