Tasting Notes

Here too there is noticeable wood influence but it's less obvious and does not really interfere with the transparency of the spicy nose of red currants, blue berries and cassis that is cool and restrained. There is outstanding intensity to the mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are both slightly tighter but notably finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot, not to mention more serious and longer with notably less of the overt sweetness. While certainly a big and muscular effort, it is actually quite refined and should be exceptional in time.

Score: 95Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (45), January 2012

Strong reduction obliterates the nose though there is plenty of vibrancy and life to the mineral-driven, intense and focused big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that are beautifully precise on the incredibly backward and austere finish. This will require at least 15 years to be at its best and 20 would not surprise me. Impressive as hell but don't buy it if you don't have the discipline to wait as it would be a waste to open this too young.

Score: 93/96Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (42), May 2011
