Another great value from a great vintage, this right-bank Bordeaux surprises with a burst of ripe fruit upon opening -- plum, raspberry, dark cherry. But after time in the open it remains largely closed, the acidity and chalky tannins suggesting decent aging potential. There may not be all that much depth regardless, but this shows serious elegance and teases with complex aromas of dark fruit, mocha, graphite, herbs, earth, butter, and sweet marshmallow, however thin overall at this point. It's a solid 88, with some patience to let it breathe, but substantial improvement is certainly possible.
