2013 noir - 92 pts from Wine Enthusiast

Waves of rich bacon fat, maple, caramelized black cher­ries, camp­fire smoke and an ele­gant touch of laven­der show on the nose of this bot­tling, which includes 14% Counoise. Sim­i­lar smoke shows on the palate, but it’s more tart and acidic than expect­ed, with under­ripe black­ber­ry and black plum skin fla­vors. The tan­nins are fine-grained but firm. Drink 2018 through 2023. Cel­lar Selection
