Description

This too is quite deeply colored. Notes of both wood and menthol set off the liqueur-like aromas of black pinot fruit, spice, newly turned earth and a floral nuance. The concentrated, powerful and imposingly-scaled big-bodied flavors possess a supple mid-palate that contrasts considerably with the tight, mildly austere and impressively long finish where an interesting hint of anise appears. This will need at least a few years of bottle age first, though that is virtually always the case with a well-made Clos des Chênes. 91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
