The colour is showing some age. It is getting lighter. The rim is more orange, but the core is still medium intense ruby-red. Very fine nose. It is also showing some evolution, but there is still a lot of primary fruit in there. Very elegant red fruit such as raspberry, cherry, sweet berries, fine layers of spice, with a hint of tobacco. A slight hint of oak, but very discreet. Again it is starting to develop more complexity so it is all integrating here. Very good density on the palate. It has a lot of weight. It is a quite broad and lush with layers of that beautiful spicy sweet fruit. However the texture is very polished so it is really subtle on the palate now, with plenty of juiciness, good richness of fruit. With a well-preserved acidity and a very long lingering finish. Very fine drinkability today. Still a wine with a lot of extract. Showing preferably with an enormous piece of juicy steak. However, it will continue to develop more complexity and harmony over the coming years.
