A great, intense wine, probably the most impressive in the line-up of Kuentz-Bas grand crus. The structure, tannins and concentrated fruit all work together, while the toast and green apples combine to give it both depth and a lift. It should age as well, over the next 5–10 years. Imported by Kermit Lynch.
