A highly reserved, cool and super-fresh nose only reluctantly gives up the essence of red cherry, pomegranate, wet stone and soft earth aromas. The supporting tannins are even finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot and the minerality is much more pronounced on the delineated middle weight flavors that seem to vibrate in the mouth before terminating in an austere, saline and hugely long finish. In the same fashion as the Clos de Vougeot the tannic spine is fine but quite prominent and plenty of patience is a must. Don’t miss! Drink 2031+

Dark red. Very pure but subdued aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and minerals. Suave and wonderfully precise on the palate, conveying lovely inner-mouth rose petal lift to the flavors of raspberry and crushed-stone minerality. Totally different in style from the Clos Vougeot and Echézeaux and a step up in precision, finesse and sophistication. The very long, rising, saline finish perks up the taste buds. My projected score may prove to be overly conservative.
