A restrained if extremely pretty nose is comprised by cool notes of red cherry, violet and a hint of crushed anise. There is both good detail and punch to the beautifully textured medium weight flavors that flash more evident minerality on the youthfully austere and tautly muscular finale that offers very good if not distinguished persistence. Like any self-respecting example of Clos des Chênes, this is going to require at least a few years of patience and should ultimately repay up to a decade of keeping.
