95pts Penin, 95pts Tim
superb clay and sand-based vineyard that has been in the Simon family since the
deep garnet-red color with little sign of evolution. With the glass at rest,
mineral aromas of china ink, stone and terroir. When you swirl the glass
reminders of graphite, prunes, sweet liquorice, toast. Silky smooth attack.
Full, meaty mouth-feel with persistent, very elegant tannins. Sweet black-fruit
flavors. Re-minders of minerals and spices, pipe tobacco, cedar. Flavorsome,
persistent aftertaste. Drink 2021-2030,
