The wood treatment presently all but dominates the very ripe and markedly spicy plum liqueur and earth scented-nose. The velvety and seductively textured flavors are extremely ripe, indeed there is a subtle chocolate element that can be found on the almost soft mid-palate though the finish does tighten up quickly. This is an odd wine in that the wood treatment sweetens the finish and the chocolate element isn't what one expects from grand cru Gevrey yet despite all of these aspects that don't appeal to me, this seems to somehow work anyway. As a consequence my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt that this will somehow come together in time.
