The 2007 le Bourg is a beautiful and very transparent young vintage for this outstanding wine. The deep, complex and very classy nose offers up scents of cassis, black cherries, cigar ash, coffee, fresh herbs, a lovely base of soil and a deft touch of nutty new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and very accessible out of the blocks (particularly for this sturdy cuvée), with moderate tannins, outstanding focus, a sappy core of fruit and lovely length and grip on the pure and nascently complex finish. This is a simply stellar example of the 2007 vintage! (Drink between 2014-2040) (4/2017)
