Dark, dense, sleek. Modern in a good sense but perhaps a tad extracted though I doubt thus will matter in the long run. And this has a long run in-front of it.
UPDATE (Aug, 2013) – this is really starting to develop complexity. It doesn’t typify the vintage, it’s a little too big and extracted for that, but it’s turning delicious not just impressive. My esteem for Chateau Giscours moves up a notch.
