Tasting Notes

**Note: from 90+ year old vines that are worked by horse**
In contrast to the nose of the Clos de la Roche, this is notably more floral and more elegant with ripe yet higher-toned aromas of essence of red pinot fruit that combines with subtle spice and warm earth nuances. There is a velvety mouth feel yet good precision to the wonderfully rich flavors that possess a high level of phenolic maturity before terminating in a refined, pure and delicately balanced finish. An exercise in harmony and grace. In two words, absolutely stunning.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (46), April 2012

Medium red. Tight but pure nose offers redcurrant, red cherry, minerals, flowers, licorice and menthol, plus a high note of orange zest. On the palate, terrific inner-mouth energy gives sharp definition to the intense flavors of red berries, spices and menthol. Finishes with serious, firm tannins and an impression of weightlessness. For a taut wine that's built for a graceful evolution in bottle, this is remarkably pliant today.
