Font de Michelle "Etienne Gonnet" Chateauneuf du Pape 2000

Evolved, dull red.

No Vinturi. Integrated nose - smoke, herbs, licorice, earth, fig.

Intense spice/earth entry. Actually a bit bound up, but far better than my last bottle. Vinturi might have helped. Seems like there's some stem inclusion here, but I could be wrong. Needs time, but this is obviously loaded with good stuff.
