Candy and menthol on the nose. Simple cherry fruit. Very nice fine tannic paste, and the fruit has decent persistence, but the overall impression is underwhelming.(JR)
A fresh, pure and layered nose consists of liqueur-like red berry fruit, plum, violet, earth and touches of game and forest floor. There is excellent richness to the robust and intensity medium weight plus flavors that coat the palate with dry extract where the supporting structure arrives all at once on the finish. This very fine effort is very Aloxe in basic character yet it is not really rustic or austere. As an aside I had to laugh when Cornu described this as a "rugby man wearing a tutu"!
