92 Bright ruby. Complex aromas of dark berries, violet and minerals, with slow-mounting smokiness. Very suave and velvety on entry, then tight and energetic in the mid-palate, with dense dark berry and bitter cherry flavors, chewy texture and a medicinal nuance. Thevenet, who is the son of Jean-Paul Thevenet, told me that these soils are heavily granitic, which is what gives his wine structure. The finish is firm, gripping and very long. Here's another 2009 that will age.
