Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru 2013
Noticeable but not dominant wood frames the ripe plum, menthol, black cherry and spice suffused nose. There is excellent volume but also fine detail to the extract-rich medium weight flavors that possess an attractive sense of underlying tension on the very firm and complex finish that delivers good but not better length. It's of course possible that this will continue to improve before it's bottled but at present it's not really distinguished.
