Tasting Notes

**Note: from 90+ year old vines in a parcel measuring .32 ha**
A kaleidoscopically spicy nose combines notes of both red and dark berries along with plenty of floral, tea and wood elements. There is superb richness to the mouth coating and tautly muscular large-scaled flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract while still managing to retain really lovely detail on the impressively complex and hugely persistent finish where the only minor nit is a touch of warmth. This robust if not necessary elegant Musigny should reward up to three decades of cellar time and once again, it's a wine that is going to need it.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (70), April 2018

Bright medium red. Very tight, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, red licorice, wild herbs, flowers and crushed-rock minerality; a real essence of young Musigny. Then surprisingly layered and expressive in the mouth, with its perfumed raspberry, strawberry and saline soil flavors given punch by superb mineral-driven energy. This is sweeter and more open-knit than the Amoureuses today but every bit as precise and delineated as that wine. Finishes with noble, seamless tannins and palate-staining length. Stunning potential here.
