Tasting Notes

**Note: made from purchased must sourced from Domaine Thénard, whose vines are on the Chassagne side; aged in two-thirds new oak**
This is quite overtly reduced and thus the nose is unreadable today. Otherwise there is even more size, weight and power to the almost massive flavors that possess excellent mid-palate sap as well as a very firm core of ripe acidity that prevents the finish from being unduly heavy or ponderous on the hugely long finish. As good as the preceding grands crus are, and they are indeed excellent, this simply brings another dimension of depth to bear.
