A strikingly pretty, even perfumed, nose is comprised by aromas of spiced plum, dark currant, tea and a discreet but not invisible application of wood. There is both more refinement and minerality present on the caressing yet quite powerful medium-bodied flavors that also culminate in an equally firm and lingering finish. This too is built-to-age but in contrast to the Pruliers, the natural refinement of a classic Les Cailles will permit it to be approached after 6 to 8 years. Outstanding.
