Made under the helmsmanship of Boisset’s winemaker Stephanie Putnam and consulting oenologist Philippe Melka, the wine exhibits a dense purple color, a big, sweet kiss of chocolate, blackberry and cassis, a touch of forest floor and earth, a bit of truffle and loads of black and blue fruits, background oak, sweet tannin and adequate acidity. Its should drink well for 20 or more years. by Robert M. Parker, Jr.
