There's a nice charcoal note driving this from the start, while the dark plum, blackberry and black currant fruit waits in reserve. Ganache, licorice snap and tobacco fill in the finish and give this added range, while a singed alder wood note runs underneath for added texture and length. Impressive. Best from 2015 through 2030.
The wine offers up notes of jammy black cherries, black currants, licorice, camphor, underbrush and some subtle vanillin. The wine is full-bodied, voluptuously textured and rich, with good acidity, surprising freshness and laser-like definition given its ampleness and length. It can be drunk early on for its beautiful fruit, but look for this wine to hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for two decades.
Medium-deep ruby. Raspberry, violet, mocha and a hint of smoky torrefaction on the nose. Dense, sweet and creamy, with red cherry and berry flavors lifted by a floral component. Finishes sweet and pure, with fine tannins, very good length and a persistent hint of coffee. One of the best young Bellefont-Belciers I recall.
