(from the climat of Brussonnes). Ripe and mildly exotic aromas reflect notes of petrol, essence of apple and a whiff of as yet unabsorbed sulfur. The rich, concentrated and broad-shouldered flavors possess evident power as well as fine punch on the solidly complex and sneaky long finish. This is very Morgeot in that it’s muscular and robust if not particularly refined. 91/2023+
