The 2010 Clos St. Denis is downright explosive from the first taste. An exotic melange of dark cherries, plums, minerals and cloves are all supported by insistent underlying minerality. The wine continues to grow in the glass, as layers of flavor fill out its broad-shouldered frame nicely. Blackberries, cassis, menthol and licorice flow through to the textured finish. This is a breathtaking effort. It is also a wine for the very patient. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045.

This was initially noticeably reduced but aggressive swirling coaxes out a nose that is even more floral still with a pungent violet and rose character to the very fresh spice and earth-inflected fresh berry fruit aromas. There is beautiful subtlety to the detailed, refined and admirably pure middle weight flavors that possess a velvety, even plush mouth feel, all wrapped in a perfectly balanced and harmonious finish where the supporting tannins are remarkably fine-grained. This is really lovely stuff, indeed it is textbook Clos St. Denis. Drink to 2025+.
