2016 pas de deux - 93 pts from Vinous

Deep red. A high­ly per­fumed bou­quet evokes ripe red fruits, can­died flow­ers and exot­ic spices, along with hints of olive paste and white pep­per. Then juicy and ener­getic in the mouth, offer­ing appeal­ing­ly sweet rasp­ber­ry, vio­let pastille and cola fla­vors that deep­en on the back half. Smooth­ly plays rich­ness off ele­gance and fin­ish­es impres­sive­ly long and smooth, show­ing tight focus and just a hint of fine-grained tannins.
