Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 96 (2008 Jan.)

Inky ruby. Smoky raspberry and creme de cassis aromas, with a surreal array of spice, floral and mineral qualities building in the glass. Palate-saturating red berry preserve flavors show a liqueur-like sweetness and viscosity but also remarkable mineral lift, finishing broad, sappy and with amazing persistence. One of my favorite wines of the vintage. "This is a selection; it's not from a particular plot," Thierry Usseglio told me.
