(from a .60 ha parcel split 50/50 between Chapelle and En Gémeaux) This is noticeably riper with a liqueur-like nose featuring red and blue berry fruit that has violet and rose fragrances around the edges that precede rich, full, sappy and well-muscled big-bodied flavors that are seductive, minerally and textured and culminate in a punchy, energetic and driving finish. I like the underlying sense of tension here and while the tannins are less sophisticated than those of the Griotte, there is a bit more overall depth here. A qualitative choice.

Crackling fruit. Although the vines responsible for this wine are from the same selection planted at the same time as those responsible for the Griottes tasted immediately beforehand, this wine seems softer and fruitier. Quite charming and easy - gives the impression of wearing red velvet robes and cracking a wicked joke or two.
