Good medium red. Less about primary fruits on the nose than the Chapelle, showing cool menthol and mineral notes and a sauvage earthy aspect. Juicy but tight; conveys a less-ripe impression than the Chapelle but offers excellent energy and cut to its cherry and cassis fruit flavors. Notes of spices, herbs and salty minerality give the finish a slightly austere character. This was also 12.6% potential alcohol at harvest, but it doesn't show the weight or the stuffing–or the early balance–of the Chapelle. Latricières is a cooler terroir than Chapelle, and it shows in these two 2013s.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030
