While aromatically similar to the Boucherottes this is even denser, in fact this is almost unctuously rich with seemingly buckets of sappy and palate coating dry extract which is just as well given how firm and powerful the supporting tannic spine is. This isn't necessarily better than usual though it is bigger and more powerful than is typical. Note that here too that plenty of patience will be required.
