Good bright, dark red. Very pure aromas of briary blueberry and piquant herbs; slightly medicinal in its austerity. Dense, rich and sweet but tightly wound and austere, with dominant flavors of briary black fruits and earth. The most obviously tannic and medicinal of the estate’s 2004s at this stage. Millet notes that de Vogue owns "an elegant part" of Bonnes-Mares. This will require extended aging.
