Allen MEADOWS, 2015 Vintage

CLOS DE TART GRAND CRU MONOPOLE
94

(from vines that average around 60+ years of age; yields of 22 hl/ha in 2015).
Moderate wood frames very ripe liqueur-like aromas of plum, cassis, floral and ample spice and earth nuances. There is excellent richness to the opulent yet relatively refined big-bodied flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the powerful, mouth coating and driving finish that possesses outstanding complexity and persistence. There is a hint of warmth but overall this is quite well-balanced and the length is remarkable. My sense is that while this will age effortlessly for decades, it should not be particularly difficult young. 94/2035+
