(fruit from Sylvie Esmonin, picked at the beginning of October) Bright red-ruby. Knockout nose combines raspberry, smoked meat, minerals and flowers. Silky on entry, then almost painfully intense and even a bit youthfully tough but with grand cru class. This has superb density of material but is held in check today by serious, oak-powered tannins. Finishes with a superripe suggestion of caramel. This one will be fascinating to follow-and to compare over time with the wine made by Sylvie Esmonin at her family domain.
