($190-$413) Good deep red. Wild, superripe aromas of blackberry liqueur, mocha, milk chocolate and faded rose. Sweet, dense and thick, but with very good lift to its flavors of dark berries, wild herbs and game. This impressively fat, large-scaled grand cru is as chewy as a solid. Finishes very long and lush, with thoroughly ripe tannins. Those who taste with their mouth alone will rate this massive wine even higher than I did; I wanted a bit more in the way of treble notes. But this one may yet explode with seven or eight years of cellaring.

About This Producer


With his son Serge, Robert Groffier creates spectacular Pinot Noirs that are the powerful benchmarks of the respective communes. The Amoureuses, with its succulent fruit, is a kaleidoscope of aromatics and flavorsl. The Clos de Beze is an effort unto itself and has a mouth-coating, sweet earthy, gamy, bramble quality that is elegant and classy. The Sentiers and Haut Doix Chambolles offer classic, high-toned red berry and cherry elements that tend toward a bit more elegance and herb in the former and supple, round vibrancy in the latter.
