Bright purple. Expansive aromas of fresh black raspberry, cassis, olive, incense and violet, along with an exotic spicy topnote. Juicy and focused on the palate, displaying superb clarity to the sappy dark fruit preserve, floral pastille and spicecake flavors. Definitely powerful, yet there's real liveliness and even a somewhat light touch here as well. Finishes impressively long and sweet, delivering powerful mineral thrust, a cracked pepper flourish and mounting tannins. It wouldn't surprise me to see this 2017 turn out to be the most impressive rendition of this consistently outstanding bottling Chave has ever made. JOSH RAYNOLDS
