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.
