This is in a beautiful place. All its structural components have integrated well. and it is showing some secondary development, but there’s still good delicious primary fruit, too.
Aromas of veal stock, grilled steak, dry-aged beefy funk. Black cherry and raspberry.
Flavors of black olive, blackberry, cassis and cherry. Very North Rhone. More the elegant side than the sauvage side of things. I tasted some Levet last week, and I think those two wines are the only things keeping me from marking this higher. Complex and long. In an excellent place now, but no rush to drink up - this has five more years for sure, and probably 10 or more.
