Tasting Notes

This too displays very subtle reduction, which again is not enough to hide the nose, it simply renders it less expressive than it otherwise would be. An extremely ripe nose of somber cassis and dark pinot fruit introduces relatively voluminous and vibrant flavors that possess ample mid-palate fat on the more obviously structured finish brimming with minerality and a hint of the sauvage. As with the Clos de la Rougeotte, I strongly suggest decanting it first.
