($159) Full ruby. Superripe, deep aromas of dark berries and smoked meat, with a resiny suggestion of surmaturite; less pristine than the Griottes. Huge, superconcentrated and opulent, with a liqueur-like ripeness verging on exotic. This has Chambertin-like depths. Extremely long, slow-mounting flavors go on and on. A wine of great brooding power. Still, for the first time in years, I marginally prefer the Griottes, which is more vibrant and scented. Philippe says it-AEs simply more pleasing today.
