In spite of difficult climatic conditions the wines have turned out remarkably well. The Grand Vin has a deep garnet color, and though the bouquet is still a little closed, it starts to develop nice dried plum and crystallized fruits aromas. In the mouth, after an initial impression of softness and silkiness, the palate stretches out surprisingly onto very persistent flavors. The tannins are well fleshed out without any harshness. Not a monster, but a very balanced wine with concentration and class.
