(from a .90 ha parcel) A seductive and wonderfully airy nose of black cherry and raspberry also displays a much more discreet hint of reduction that merges into rich, full and sweet flavors that offer good detail and fine intensity, culminating in a textured, long, stylish and mouth coating finish where the dryness it displayed from cask has completely dissipated. Note that in contrast to the Alouettes, the reduction is quite minor and a brief decanting should be sufficient.

Good deep red-ruby. Sexy, carnal aromas of blackberry, iron and mocha. Broad, dry and minerally, with impressive intensity of flavor for 15-year-old vines. Strong earth tones of mocha, brown spices and rust. This is also surprisingly creamy but the mineral edge gives it shape and grip. Finishes broad, long and aromatic, with somewhat dusty tannins. Ponsot says that today's plants can "reach the real terroir," by which he means can descend about seven meters, in as little as seven years.
