Yowza. The “Grand Cru.” which is obvious as soon as one smells it. An amalgam of spice, minerals, apple and pear. But heirloom apples and yes there is a difference. Just insane unreal complexity. So serene. So calming. So zen. I love the calming complexity of this wine. Huge power, depth and concentration with almost tannic elements on the finish. Easily the star of the trio but needs a few hours to strut its stuff. The epic long finish is the giveaway. That nose is, dare I say, Brisset like? It’s so complex and compact. Just insane. Wow this is sappy and complex to the max. Saturates the palate with Grand Cru grip and persistence. This is genius. More notes once it opens up.
