Here too the wood treatment framing the ripe but nicely cool aromas of red and dark raspberry coulis is quite subtle. The strikingly concentrated larger-scaled, more powerful and more mineral-driven flavors exude an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the austere and built-to-age finale. This is a Clos des Chênes to buy and forget for at least 8 to 10 years. 91-93 points. Burghound.
