TASTING NOTES

 

Blueberry, plum and flower aromas with some new leather. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit and density. Flavorful and stylish at the finish. 

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Showing beautifully from bottle, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, black plums, sweet soil tones and subtle spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's one of the more tightly wound wines in the range, with powdery structuring tannins, lively acids and a long, penetrating finish. 

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

This is compositionally similar to the Taillepieds but even riper and with just a bit more spice elements. There is good intensity and minerality on the delicious middle weight flavors that also coat the palate on the youthfully austere and slightly warm finish that delivers fine length. Outstanding.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Presenting a rather intoxicating mélange of red and black fruit laced with violet. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good body and density and a firm backbone. 

Neil Martin, Vinous.

There is a very significant concentration of fruit here, but it is slightly dry at the finish. Perhaps deep plums in the end. 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
