Tasting Notes

♥ SWEET SPOT / OUTSTANDING - BURGHOUND | Saturated ruby-red. Hints of surmaturite to the aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and leather. Gained in freshness in the mouth, showing very dark flavors of black fruits and menthol enlivened by minerals. Like a compote of dark berries, but with superb inner-mouth lift and concentration as well as a finesse of texture rare for a wine this ripe. Finishes with big tannins and a medicinal reserve. This is sexy today owing to its sheer sweetness but should age for a long time. Stephen Tanzer
