With this bottle we definitely moved into a riper as well as younger range of wine. Richly scented with assertive notes of smoke, leather, sweet bay leaf and sour plum, this also had a fine note of classic Beaucastel barnyard. There is a subtle tone of green herb and a bit of toast under the jammy black currant fruits. With air a whiff of iron emerges and the wine takes on a darker personality with roast meat, olive brine, espresso crema and licorice tones adding complexity. This was a disappointment in the mouth after the impressive aromatics. A touch lean and muted in the mouth this had a nice balanced mouthfeel but only hint of red fruits on the mid-palate with an average finish that offered rather low intensity flavors. Mediocre, was it the bottle? 88pts based mostly on the nose.
