i tasted this on release when it’s lush fruit inspired me to purchase more. back then the vintage characteristics were definitely showing through more than joguet characteristics, but in a good way. now it has settled into itself with the fruit segueing into classic cabernet franc minerality. beautiful acidity.
this is delicious right now with a 2hr decant although i intend cellaring a few for 10 or more years as i’ve heard this bottling can become quite extraordinary with age. 92+
