For Jean-Paul Pueyo, the vintages before 2015 are not the same thing. They are excellent wines but by maturing in the typical rive droite way they are too similar to neighboring wines. This is a vintage that is beginning to age and does so well as evidence by the orange reflections in its mostly garnet color, which is still rich and consistent for a wine with as much Merlot as in this blend. The bouquet by now has notes from bottle aging but they are elegant and defined with notes of underbrush dominated by black truffle along with those of ground coffee, prune and ripe Marasca cherry together with a very fine hint of blueberry in the finish. The fresh mouthfeel has very fine tannins but above all a lovely softness while the tobacco finish recalls Tuscan cigars.
Try this with a Basque cheese like well-aged ossau-iraty.
