Editor note: Deep and multi-layered, dark, cool, fresh, slightly reductive, floral citrus-fresh nose with planty, delicately floral and slightly mineral notes. Firmly woven, deep, cool, restrained, first bright, with air increasingly dark fruit, lively acidity, delicately smoky nuances, a little planty and floral in the background, some grip of friable, very fine tannin, intense, somewhat chalky-earthy minerality, very light black berry tones in the background, slight sweetness, deep and concentrated, only completely unapproachable, spicy nuances, some smoke, very good to long finish. Increases enormously with air and must mature for a long time.
