The 2020 Clos Saint-Martin has an extravagant, decadent bouquet of blueberry, crème de cassis, wild hawthorn and hints of raisin, although I don’t find it overripe, just a little ostentatious. The palate is marked by succulent tannins that frame the precocious black cherry and wild strawberry fruit, and blessed with a disarming satiny texture and impressive precision toward the finish. Certainly one of the most hedonistic offerings in 2020, though it just about manages to pull it off. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2045
