It has a fine, dark hue in the glass, although there is maturity here too, a deep oxblood tone which is very evident just at the rim. The nose, however, is just beautiful, showing a fresh, clean and well-defined character which fails to betray this wine's ten years of age. It has a fine, perfumed, violet bouquet, with a charcoaly, stony, mineral edge, but also deep, rich and ripe mature fruit. It seems savoury, elegant, pure and crystalline all in the same breath. I find it quite captivating, certainly enticing at the very least, The palate has a fine and fresh character which reflects that found on the nose, with a pure seam of ripe, coaly tannin, with perfumed fruit. Fresh, firm, sinewy in its substance, pure and also elegant, this has a really fabulous style and I suspect it will go for years in the cellar yet, improving with time. But it is superbly approachable, and certainly delicious, right now.
